Elimination In Dogs – How often is normal?

Elimination In Dogs – How often is normal

In general, dogs normally eliminate between 1-5 times a day. However, there are a number of factors that can have an effect on the frequency a dog defecates on a given day.  These factors include the amount of food eaten during the past 24 hours, individual difference, amount of dietary fiber, and age of the dog. Puppies are likely to eliminate more often than adults. There is really nothing to be worried about, particularly if your pet’s weight is maintained within an ideal range, he does not have any problem defecating, and his feces are of normal texture.

Frequent elimination, especially if there is fresh blood or mucus in the stool, should be checked out by your veterinarian. Sometimes a heavy parasite load may also cause abnormalities in the feces and in the frequency of elimination. This is an important reason to deworm your pet on a regular basis.
