This has been a taboo topic of discussion for many dog owners, but it always comes up as people are unsure what the regular behavior is. I think it's time to add it to our collection of poop questions.
If you are offended by this question please do not read further.
Here it goes:
- How often does you Basenji poop?
- What type of poop does your Basenji have?
- What do you consider normal?
- What supplements do you add to the food?
Kiya is usually pretty consistent, she poops twice daily, one time in the morning right after breakfast and once at night after dinner. Sometimes when we are home on the weekends she goes 3 times. Her poop is usually solid looks like small pellets. When she gets too excited at the park or when we go on a hike both dogs get diarrhea and it last for about a day. We were told it's because of excitement.
Chance has a strange behavior. We have to work around him to get him to go #2. He usually does not go in the morning, or it takes him much longer than Kiya. I have to walk him for at least 30 min for him to go poop. He would start circling in one place like he is about to go, then stop all of a sudden like he was not going to go at all. Then we have to walk around for another 15 min, so he finally goes.
Sometimes he will only poop once a day late at night. I am not sure if this indicates he has a bowel problem or that's normal. He has always been that way. Maybe we should give him some supplements to his food or take him to the vet to get him checked out.
