New pup hasn't pooped yet!?!?
 
This is my first time raising a puppy (i've previously had adult dogs).

My little guy, Finnick, came home yesterday but has yet to poop. It's been just over 24 hours. He's eaten 4 meals so far with us (3 meals per day) with no problem, he's also drinking plenty. He is urinating fine (although it takes a while in the garden for him to actually "go" because he gets distracted. Is this normal for him not to have pooped? Am I going to get one giant poop when he eventually poops? Shovel at the ready! :S

I dont think that is normal. Has there been a change in the food from what the breeder was feeding? Does he have free access to water? Are you allowing him the opportunity to freely wander about in the yard to deceide to poop? Has he been dewormed at all? If so, with what and when? Has he had a bout with diarrhea recently and his stools are just firming up?

my puppy did the same thing. It worried me. He will go. He might be nervous of his new life. =)

Thank you :) maybe he will eventually go, I think I will just phone my vet to double check (and put my mind at ease). He seems very happy in himself.

dawnandjr - I'm feeding him the food the breeder gave me when I got Finnick. So, it's not the food :(

My puppy took for ever. I kept taking him out side hoping he would go.....=( but once he did, it seam like he had to poop all the time, and also tried to eat it. =p good luck, keep us posted what happens and what the vet said.

Thanks :) it's put my mind at ease a bit. I'll update on what the vet says :) we've just spent about 1/2 hour in the garden in case he wanted to poop, but nothing.

Is that your pup in your avatar? He is gorgeous!!!! x

he'll go. I remember being a little frustrated too because my little guy wouldn't poop either. How do you teach a puppy where to poop if he wont poop??! Haha, give him time, play with him. I've noticed it loosens my pup up sometimes. Goes RIGHT after a walk. but 24 hours IS long. I'd consider getting the vet to take a look at him if hes blocked up for much longer.
