hi, our day old puppies are pooping by themselves already - is this normal?
If the pup are drinking from mum then they will be pooping - mum stimulates the process by cleaning the pups so that they defecate. Mum then cleans up.
They are pooping without being stimulated by mom?!? That’s why we are unsure - they are small but solidly formed.
Is she not cleaning them?
Yes - she is cleaning then but they seem to be pooping at anytime not straight after being cleaned. This isn’t her first litter.
