Too Much Poopin'
 
My mini-schnauzer, 9+ years old, has up to 8 bowel movements a day. Often during the night. They go from normal to stringy, to just spots. We are at our wits end. She eats good, never any junk. Has only healthy treats. Do you have any suggestions. Thank you

Most definately too many bowels movements so I would say this is a good time to get a vet check up and also considering she is 9. I imagine it could be anything from irritable bowel to worms, parasites but not something I would leave unchecked. Have you checked for weight loss?

What's the protein your feeding? There are some instances when a protein change can help.

Yes, tell us the food that you are feeding, brand and particular product.
