I have a 10 month old female chi, otherwise very healthy, playful and vibrant. Yesterday I noticed that her stools were very mucousy. They arent runny, there is just mucous incorporated with the otherwise normal stool. Should I be worried about this? What could cause this?

I should add that yesterday she ate some filling from a teddy bear and I had to actually pull her poo out of her because she couldnt pass it. So this probably could be an irritation from that?

Thanks in advance for any help.

when you say mucus do you mean like a runny,******,creamy sort of discharge?my chi puppy has this incorpurated into his stools too and he use to chew my mongolian cushions (but i have moved them away now) and he passed some of the hairs out but i do had to pull them out of him which he did not take kindly too!
he hasnt been eating any of the cushions since i have moved them but the mucus is still there in small amounts,what does this mean?

I think the best thing to do is call your vet. Is she vomiting? If she is not vomiting or doesn't seem to be in pain then its more than likely not a intestinal blockage. It cold be the irritation form the teddy bear stuffing or it could be many of number of thing. Good luck and keep us posted :wave:

It's real hard for anyone to really give you a real explanation, so like what KJsChihuahuas said, call the vet. He/She will have a better answer for you. I really hope your baby is okay..

My chi would occasionally eat hair on the floor and would poo it out and sometimes I would have to pull it out.. :pukeright: Why she does this.. :dontknow:

Keep us all updated please!! :D

I agree I think both of you should give your vets a call and take a stool sample in with you when you go - good luck and keep us posted :wave:

Thank you so so so much for all of your replies. I will absolutely call my vet, who happens to also own a chi girl.

The mucous is not white, its clear for the most part. She hasnt shown any symptoms of discomfort or vomiting, so I am sure she will be ok. I will keep you posted!

Thanks again. :)

Mucus is excreted in the stool when their is either excess dairy in the diet or mild irritation in the GI tract. The stomach and intestinal lining produces excess mucus to coat the walls and this excess is excreted in the stool as a gelatinous clearish-yellowish looking substance. It's not abnormal to see it once, but chronic observation of mucus in the stool can indicate GI abnormalities such as intestinal parasites (worms, coccidia, Giardia), food allergy, foreign body, etc... especially if accompanied by other symptoms like diarrhea, blood in the stool, vomitting, loss of appetite, lethargy, abdominal pain etc...

If you are concerned, bring your pup to the vet along with a fresh stool sample so they can test it.
