I just started giving my yorkie missing link last week, and have noticed that she is pooping up a storm. I know there is a lot of fiber in it, but am only giving her a pinch with her food..is this normal??

What food do you feed her?
My boy has been on missing link since he was 12 weeks old. He poops about 2-3 times a day. He is free fed dry kibble and gets exactly one teaspoon of ML with a teaspoon of cottage cheese per day.
Reason I ask is because some foods that are full of fillers will cause them to poop more.

Gracie is on missing link with her Nutro Natural Choice and she hasnt had any problems. Did she poop a lot before she was put on Missing Link? I agree with the post above the better quality of the food the less pooping.
Or maybe the missing link just isnt for her if it upsets her stomach.

Adding Missing Link to their food is alot like switching them to a new food....do it gradually. Tummy upset is to be expected. Hobbs' tummy was upset for a week when we started him on the Missing Link. Just keep doing what you're doing and his tummy will get used to it.

But the amount of poo reall should be based on the food they're eating I would think... ? Whats in the bowl??
