How long would it take for a food like say…. Authority? Or Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul? I feed my black lab (around 40-50lbs) 3 cups of Authority a day, and she poops too much, I find. Especially if we go on walks, she’ll poop 2-3 times. On one walk before, 2 blocks, she pooped literally 4 separate times… -_- Should I switch her to Chicken Soup? Would it make her go less?

Are you feeding her people food? Are you giving her a lot of snacks? If she is pooping that much then she might not be getting enough nutrients from her food. Is she underweight or overweight? What she is pooping is all the stuff from the food she is not using. Buy her a food that doesn’t have bi-products. Something that she will use it all. I feel Nutro and it does great (but all dogs are different). It also depends on how much is eliminated with each bowel movement. She may need to see a vet if changing foods doesn’t help. She might need a special diet or something might be wrong with her stomach. I think it’s poor food though. I have never even heard of Authority.
