Why does your dog have white stools?

This could be a sign of dehydration, or possible kidney trouble. Contact your vet and take in a stool sample.

Any time a dog or puppy has blood in their stools, they need to see a veterinarian.

If you see black stools in your dog, your dog is sick. Most likely, the black stool will go away. If your dog keeps having the black stool, you should take him in for a check-up.

Speaking to my local vet, white stools from dogs (rarely seen these days) were due to eating bones. Remember when we used to go to local butchers instead of supermarkets and they used to give them out for free? As bones cannot be digested and together with high amounts of calcium and marrow, dog stools turned white! If this same problem is happening to anyone you know, I'd get them to seriously look into their diet - or visit the doctor ASAP.

It could be anything from too many fats in the dog's diet, to have a bit of an intestinal problem (we all get them). Even humans can have a certain amount of mucus in their stools. If your dog's stools are quite white with mucus then it's advisable to take a stool sample to your vets for analysis to be sure there is no infection.

Tarry stools are an indication of a gastrointestinal bleed. These can be fatal very rapidly. Get the dog to a vet at once. Consider preserving a stool sample too.

Any of them. Dry dog foods are formulated partially to achieve that.

Bright red dog stools may be caused by bleeding in the lower part of the digestive tract, or by ingesting something red and undigestible. See your vet for information specific to your dog's situation.

consistency and color are related to the dogs diet. It sounds like your dog might be eating a raw diet? When I feed my dogs straight meat their stools are very small, whitish and more dense than when they have kibble.

White bar stools can be purchased from Walmart, Target, KMart, Sears, The Bay, Rona, Lowes, Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Sense, United furniture Warehouse and Leons.

The brown colour of stools is mainly due to bile, produced in the liver. White stools indicate that bile is not getting into the intestine due to blockage of the bile duct, most commonly due to gallstones. If it happens after gallbladder surgery, it may indicate damage to the bile duct.

Of coarse you can feed your dog white rice, because can you feed your dog white rice? is saying do you have the ability to feed your dog white rice. Of coarse you have the ability to feed your dog white rice, but if you will feed your dog white rice is your choice. you should have asked, is it healthy for your dog to eat white rice? instead.

Check the dogs stools to see if it passed. Perhaps you can still salvage it.

Accidentally, yes - my 50 lb dog snatched half a lotus moon cake, appears to be fine and no loose stools.

If the dogs stools have changed think if it has eaten anything new recently. If not keep a eye on it and give it extra water to keep it hydrated. If the dog is under one and the stool reeks like death and it has not had it's shots take it to the vet it may have parvo.

If you are truly blind then you would realize your other senses are heightened. Your sense of smell would tell you where the stools of your dog are, even if you were not blind.
