Know These Dog Poop Color

Normal Poop

The colour of a dog’s poop depends on many factors such as breed, age, climate, nutrition, etc. Thus, the colour may vary due to these factors. However, a healthy dog with no health issues would discharge poop of brown colour irrespective of food being served to him.

Green Poop

Green poop indicates that your dog is eating a lot of grass. Consult your vet to know the exact reason behind this and get him treated. In most cases, a pet eating grass is seen as a sign of GI upset.

Yellow Poop

Yellow colour stool signifies a problem related to your pet’s diet. Change in pet’s diet or introducing any new ingredient to your dog’s plate may cause stomach upset and thus leading to yellowish poop colour.

Red Streaks
This is not a healthy condition for your pet. It indicates bleeding in the GI tract. Visit your vet along with the sample of your pet’s stool for a full treatment of your dog. The vet will examine the faeces of your pet to know the reason for the passing of the blood. He may advise you to put your pet on a healthy diet and protect him from parasitic infection through flea preventives such as Frontline Plus, etc.

Black Poop
If your furry pal is passing black poop or tarry black, it may be due to stomach ulcer or problem in the small intestine. Consult your vet for treatment.

White Spots In the Stool
White specs in the stool are indicative of worm infection in the pet. See you vet and use wormers such as Popantel for deworming your pet.

The colour of your pet’s stool has a lot to do with the food being served to him. Thus, feed your dog the best quality food and protect him from external and internal infection through flea preventives and wormers. Consult your vet if you suspect anything serious.
