|How many times do you feed your Pug and how many times do they poop daily? I'm just wondering because now that Lily is turning 2 yrs old, she is still pooping 3 times a day. I expected this when she was much younger and ate 3 meals a day. I've tried feeding one larger meal a day instead of two smaller ones, but there's no difference in her potty routine.
I make sure she "goes" before I leave at 9am. Problem is, she goes again around noon and no one is home to let her out before I get back by 2pm. So I find a big mess that is a challenge to deal with at this point. This isn't a very long time span, and most other dogs (like my Papillon can make it fine), but Lily has separation anxiety and works herself into a frenzy. She must be crated for that short time because she will destroy the house and eat cat turds.
As long as I am home, she has never had an accident. I feed her a high quality food, and the vet says she is a healthy weight. She does get one small duck and potato biscuit in the morning, but I feel like a mean mommy feeding her once a day since Pugs always hungry anyhow.
What is your dog's feeding/poop schedule? Any ideas for Lily? Thanks!
