My dogs stools are normal at first and then when finishing

Customer Question

My dogs stools are normal at first and then when finishing she has wet drops I have wormed her with Advercat and tape worm tablet. She is on a diet of chicken and rice or white fish but it has mad e no difference. Her behaviour is normal. I had noticed in the last few weeks she seems much more hungry than normal. She has no weight loss. She is a normal size Yorkshire Terrier of 5 years old. Should I be worried?

Hi,

This can be a normal finding in dogs whereby the last voided faeces is more fluid and watery, so I wouldn't be worried. This is as long as Rosie is well happy bright alert and doesn't have diarrhoea, vomiting or any blood in the faeces. You could try bulking the faeces up a little with some bran (bran flake cereal is fine crumbled into the food, maybe 1/2 a tablespoon) Monitor her appetite if you feel it is definitely increased then she should be seen by your vet as sometimes conditions such as diabetes present like this, but I would expect her to be drinking excessively too!

Good luck and regards

Dan

I forgot to say, if you are concerned and do take Rosie to the vet, your vet may find it helpful if you take a faecal sample with you in case they wish to get it tested.
