Default pooping too much in a day?

Hi everyone,

Boo is almost 7 months now, I hope he's normal but I'm worried he's pooing too much! Please let me know if your fluffs are the same....... his poop schedule is:

645am- wake up, poo and pee
715am- poo's after his meal
sometimes poo's at 3pm depending if my sis is home
515pm-poo's after meal
730-poo's again
and SOMETIMES he poo's once more before he sleeps depending if he ate treats or not

What kind of food is he eating? Too much pooping could be caused by food that's not very nutrient rich.

He started Fromm about a month ago. Maybe it's the petsmart treats? I have a bag of those and a bag of fruitables.

Maybe it's the treats, I should get rid of the petsmart ones and only use fruitables or other healthy ones.........

Had that issue with wellness core. Vet said look at volume of each poo... Means its going right through him and he isn't absorbing. So wasting money on something he isn't getting much from. I switched to Orijen and added a little goat milk to help transition and now 2 pops a day

How much does Boo eat? Mine eat Fromm and before I cut down on the amount it seemed like someone was always pooping. Now mine go two or three times a day.

I feed my 3 Bil Jac and most days they poop 2 twice a day. Sometimes, depending on the treats, they will go 3 times but that is very rare. Before I started mine on Bil Jac, they were going 4-5 times a day. I was a Kroger's one day and it had been pouring rain. Someone had dropped a bag of something by Purina and it had spilled out onto the parking lot. The pieces had gotten wet and had swelled up--looked like little meatballs. I just thought about how the pieces would swell in my babies stomachs. I guess it makes them feel full but there is nothing of valve in the pieces. They just poop it all out. More food--more poop--vicious cycle.
