Poop only once a day?

For the longest time, Oreo has been on a regular schedule:

7:30am - pee
7:45am - eat
9:30am - poop
1:00pm - pee
5:00pm - eat
6:30pm - poop
9:00pm - pee

We were feeding him NOW! small breed formula twice a day and now have recently switched to Acana Small Breed to see if that helps with some slight allergies he is having.

He's been on Acana for about 3 weeks and not sure if there is a slight improvement on the scratching but we'll give it another week or two and see if we need to try another formula but I have a question...

He use to poop twice a day and now he only poops once (in the AM).

Is there something to be concerned about him only pooping once a day? Obviously his poops are much bigger and more abundant now that he only poops once a day hehe.

Mine ate Acanna for about a year and they had at least two poops a day. They do say the better the food the less they poop.

Every dog I have ever had only pooped once a day after a certain age. I thought Rosie would never get there. Course when they are eating two or three times a day, they are going to poop more. My Rosie is nearly --Lord can it be four? She only poops once a day usually after she has eaten in the morning. Course I feed her people food also so she get a lot of extra, but still one a day. now the cat eats a tablespoon of food and poops . He is learning to go outside now. I will be glad when we have that down.

i switched Gemma to Acana pacifica a month ago and she went from about 5 or 6 poops a day down to 2 or 3. I'd be happy with 1!!!

Well dogs are like people about the pooping. But cook up some rice real soft and keep in the fridge. Mix a little in with its food every day. Rice will help so will bananas, but my dog won't eat bananas.

It all relies on the dog health and sometimes what they eat. Juniper poops once a day when he is consuming TOTW and twice a day when he is consuming feed comprehensive meals. Marry however would waste 3-4 periods a day and he only ate 2/3 the quantity of meals that Juniper does 1 2/3 cup per day,
