Hi. A week ago we got a new puppy. He is a jack russell and turned 7 weeks old this past Saturday. When we first got him he was pooping many times in a 24 hr period, now he has only pooped twice in four days, should I be worried? Is this normal? I am going to call his vet in the morning, but wanted to post here to see if anyone had the same experience. Thanks.

my dog did that when we started feeding him ceasar wet food,the vet said mix some dry food in or switch back to the old food but my dog eventually warmed up to the food.

Did you suddenly change your dog's food? I just got a puppy a few months ago and I noticed her potty habits changed slightly as we changed her food, however only going two times in four days seems a little extreme. Hope the vet has helped you figure it out by now! :)
