Re: Your Dog's Poop can tell you what's wrong
 
From "Caring for your Dog" by Bruce Fogle, DVM

Consistency

Watery = rapid transit through intestine

Covered with mucus = conditions affecting large intestine (colitis)

Oily or greasy = malabsorption (fat not digested and absorbed)

Bubbly = gas-forming bacteria in intestine

Frequency and Quantity

Small amounts, frequent elimination = irritation of the colon (colitis)

Large amounts 3-4 times a day = digestion or absorption problem in small intestines

I'll be adding this to the Answers forum where we have already started a list of PP - Poop Properties! ;)
