Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Was the feces fresh?

Can you post a picture on this thread?

they are white and black with blood marks on them, I have already disposed them in the toilet, if she does more I will photo them about half an inch long, and quarter of an inch round.

I am sorry, but, I have never seen a slug or worm with that description coming out in the feces of a dog. I will opt out so another expert can comment. If you can post a picture that would definitely help. I am sorry I could not be of more help.
