Springer Spaniel Pooping a lot

Is it normal for my springer spaniel to poop so much? He will go outside and do like 5 piles in one setting and does it just about every time he goes out there.

Pooping NEW
by: Anonymous

We have a 5 month old springer and are feeding her blue Buffalo puppy. Her coat is amazingly shiny, but she too poops multiple times per outting at least 4 times a day. We are going to try switching her food. But maybe it is over feeding her? The vet said we couldn't over feed her and should not worry until she is 10 months. But we give her 1 cup, three times a day. She doesn't scarf it, just nibbles through it from time to time. It doesn't appear to be an upset stomach, as she doesn't struggle or have diaherra. Just wondering if any other concerns come up with this excessive amount of pooping or is it the breed?

too much pooping NEW
by: Sue

Have just read your reply to the question re too much pooping, my 17 week springer poops at least 5 times in the morning once in afternoon and then about 4 times in the evening, I was wondering if it had anything to do with the food (Wagg) I am now going to try your suggestion and change his food to see if it makes a difference.

Thanks

change his dog food as its not agreeing with him and he will not be absorbing any nutrients etc. arden grange works for ours as we had the same problem.
