Default Re: Your Dog's Poop can tell you what's wrong

From "Caring for your Dog" by Bruce Fogle, DVM

Consistency

Watery = rapid transit through intestine

Covered with mucus = conditions affecting large intestine (colitis)

Oily or greasy = malabsorption (fat not digested and absorbed)

Bubbly = gas-forming bacteria in intestine

Frequency and Quantity

Small amounts, frequent elimination = irritation of the colon (colitis)

Large amounts 3-4 times a day = digestion or absorption problem in small intestines

Default PP - Poop Properties and What They Mean

The following link has a pretty comprehensive list of what to consider based on characteristics of the diarrhea and how often and how she goes.

I'll be adding this to the Answers forum where we have already started a list of PP - Poop Properties!
