Toby poops one, sometimes two times a day. He eats quality brand foods (O&M, IVD Dental, Natural Balance and Newman's Organic) so that could be why he poops less.

How old is Obi? What brand of food do you feed him? If I were you, I would slowly switch his food (sounds like maybe it isn't agreeing with him) to a higher quality.

I would continue to keep an eye on him and if you think something is seriously wrong, I would bring him to the vet ASAP. JMO

Good luck and keep us posted!

I'm by no means a dog food expert and Eukanuba certainly isn't a bad brand, but I prefer natural and holistic dog foods. That is just my opinion. I believe that by feeding the best quality food now, I may prevent future health issues. I don't ever want to look back and regarding the choices I made.

I mix the four brands together along with Greenie Lil' Bits and store it in an air tight container. I feed the four brands because say one brand should lack in a certain vitamin or necessary ingredient, then hopefully one of the other three will have it.

It is a bit of an initial expense to buy the foods, but most of them come in a variety of sizes so you will run out at different times, thus reducing your costs.

Also, by feeding premium foods, studies have proven that it is cheaper in the long run because you have to feed less food.

Many of the foods claim that you will see a difference in the dog's coat, appearance, etc. I can't say that I see a difference in Toby's coat because he has pretty much been on the food since I had him, however, Wally is another story. I switched him to this diet around the time we got Toby and his shedding has greatly been reduced and there is a much nicer shine to his coat. So I can say that it has helped Wally.
