How much times must a pup of 21 days defecate? They are 21 days old and they began to eat a solid food, but I have not seen them doing popo,  I worry, the bitch licks them but they do not do anything.  Somebody can help?

Well the mother dog licks the puppies to make them stimulate them to defecate and urinate and she eats it.

Once they are on solid food generally the mom will stop cleaning after them as well....Have they been checked out by your vet?

Yep....I agree with everyone the mom is probably still cleaning them.....Which will not last much longer. But, my first thought was that they are 21 days old, so that is 3 weeks. Why are they on solid food already??? Or does the mom still nurse them also? As Willow ask....if the vet has not seem them yet....3 weeks is the time to have them checked, tested for worms and wormed regardless....

Good luck!
