    DefaultGross Topic- Sorry

    Just been out for a walk with Bailey and when I scooped I noticed his poo had a slimy whitish mucousy coating.
    Anything for me to be worried about do you think?

    It happens to Shelby whenever she has something out of the norm of her diet. And I'm not talking junk food. The last time was several weeks ago. I had made a turkey breast and gave her some of the meat (probably less than an 1/8 of a cup). That was enough to cause it.

    Not sure if other things might cause it -- like parasites -- but if it continues you could take a sample to the vet and determine what's wrong.

    Usually mucous-covered poop is an indication of some sort of irritation in the GI tract. Henry will get this every now and then, I don't worry too much unless he gets it for a few bowel movements in a row.

    I wouldn't worry if it happened just the once.

    If it continues it could be a parasite and you should take a sample to the vet.

    Just once would most likely indicate something new in the diet or too rich like marrow.
