It is also used in treating copraphagia (when dogs eat their own, or another dog's stool). It is believed that the pumpkin causes the stool to become distasteful to the dogs that eat the stool. But you have to feed it to the dog who's stool is being eaten, and it's not always effective for that purpose.

I am not sure how you mean "dry". If you can provide more details, I could give you a better answer. If the stool is very dry, she may be constipated and /or dehydrated.

No matter what, the dog or at least its fresh stool, needs to be seen by the vet asap. There are also other conditions that can cause bloody stool.
