How often does your hav poop?
Ceylon eats Orijin puppy formula kibble, and free-feeds. I know a lot of people on this forum would say not to free-feed, but he is skinny to begin with even though he gets lots of other treats for training and when I comb or bathe him - lower-'quality' dog treats for training, and higher quality (meat or cheese) for combing and bathing or nail clipping, since he really only tolerates those activities at best. Also, I didn't want him to become really focused on food, which is part of why I free-feed him...
So, he doesn't eat much kibble, and he poops usually only once a day. Is this normal? He is really skinny under all of his fur. He gets plenty of treats on any given day, especially since lately I've been trying to comb him out daily, which ends up meaning about half of a cheese stick or so a night. But he still only has about 1 BM a day, and he is SO skinny under all of his fur... I can feel his backbone, ribs, etc. I mean, he's not scary skinny, but I feel like he could definitely eat more than he does... and I read a post here recently about a pup that poops 2/3 times a day so that got me to wondering...
