Why would a female dog poop black tarry poop?

Black tarry poop in female dogs, as well as males, can be indicative of multiple things. The dog may have a parasite or illness. It may also be experiencing intestinal inflammation or infection. Sometimes, something the dog ate may just not have agreed with it, and the dog may be suffering from temporary indigestion.
