Gemma is just about 7 months old and weighs 2.7lbs and she is fed a little less than 1/8c of Acana twice per day and she poops 3-4 times daily, and they are fairly big poos for such a little girl. She seems a little thin so I want to increase her food to a full 1/8c twice per day, but this is going to make her poop even more, like 5-6 times per day.
Is this a problem with her absorbing Acana or is it normal for some Chis to poop so much? How many times does your Chi poop per day, what and how much are they fed, and how much do they weigh? Could it be this flavor? I am feeding her Ranchlands now and have been waiting on an order of Grasslands for over a month (it's ridiculous). Ranchlands is beef and Grasslands is lamb. I used to feed her Grasslands when she was a little puppy and I recall her pooping usually no more than 3 times per day, but that was when she was 4 months old and younger so I would expect her to poop often. I also let her free feed then so she was probably eating more than she gets now. I thought by 7 months she should be pooping a bit less than a very young puppy, especially if she's eating less.
Also, could this be worms? I'm not sure if I should pick up a dewormer at the pharmacy and give it to her just in case. She has not been dewormed since she was 10 weeks old. It's not common that people deworm their pets here every month like so in the US. I don't know if it's safe to use dewormer if she doesn't actually have any worms.
Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions?
