Exclamation my dog goes to the bathroom a lot

My dog Natty is fifteen months old. she is a lab pit mix. she is very fit and loves to run. i feed her once a day. She goes poop in large quantities up to five times a day and never less than three times. she also pees often. i do not get how she can even have this much in her system. i have been monitoring all her consumptions and at a total loss. she pees in the house because she cant hold it sometimes for too long. is there a magic cork?

How much is she eating?
Is the poop loose and diarrhea or is it solid?
How long is "too long" with peeing?

Hard to say without this info?

once a day is bad news...this is how dogs get bloat...you have to feed her 2-3 times a day.

what food are you feeding? Low quality food increases stool since its full of fillers.

peeing alot can be a UTI...a vet visit is in order.

Welcome!!!

I agree with the others. When a dog can't hold it-there could be a urinary tract infection or diabetes. I would get your dog checked out by a vet, and let the vet know the full history of toilet issues No magic cork sorry!
