Hello everyone, I'm curious to know how long after a dog eats do they poop? I have a almost 5 month old, and it seems like it take her forever to poop after she eats. My vet told me to take her out 20 min. after she eats to avoid any "crappy" situations in the house. I just got her from the humane society so she's still in training. My problem is that I take her out 20 mins. after and nothing. I'll try again about an hour later and still nothing. Finally about 3 or 4 hours after eating she finally does her business outside. Is it normal for a dog not to go for that long? Should I be concerned, expecially at her age?

It depends on the breed, size, and how old your dog is. Usually it takes puppies to poop after eating about 30 minutes to an hour. Sometimes it takes two hours for them to digest before they need to poop. It really depends on the dog, you have to study your dog to know how soon he needs to go.
