I have a 2 month old puppy, who i believe has not pooped all day, but he has eaten.
Do puppies poop a lot...is this something i should worry about?
Puppies generally poop at least twice a day, often more, and at 8 weeks old they may need to pee every 30 minutes to an hour during the day.
However, if you've only just got your puppy, he is probably a bit stressed and homesick. During the first few days in their new home, puppies may seem a bit 'sad or lonely', they may lose their appetite, sleep more than usual etc. However, if they have periods of happy activity, aren't suffering from diarrhea or vomiting, and generally seem healthy, this is usually nothing to worry about.
If not pooping is the only concern you have about your pup, I don't think you need to worry too much at this point. Puppies do sometimes get constipated, but increasing their fluids and exercise is usually enough to get their bowels moving again.
I would expect your puppy will poop soon. Best of luck with him.
