Love your site. I too take pictures of poop. My Quiani (Lakeland terrier)has gone through the mill since mid March of2020. Covide made it difficult too as our regular vet was no longer keeping the animals overnight. We went back and forth the first week on and off IV s. Then 3 in the morning with raging bloody diarrhea and a poor little dog hunched like the Halloween cat we drove off to the emergency vet.There she stays for four nights and five days. We had blood tests, ultra sounds, X-rays, tests for Addisons, and finally we had an endoscopy. Her stomach was a mess the worst they had ever seen.The only thing we had was a blood test with levels that indicated allergies or parasite. Quiani was given a five day wormer, pain meds anti acids,and antibiotics as well as the dreaded prednisone. She had a feeding tube placed as well . The poor thing was down 6 pounds . She was only 15 on a good day to begin with.
The vet put her on Purina Hydrolyzed food ( I know you hate the Purina brand but the other Royal Canin was awful she won’t eat it on a bet the smell will make you gag.) she has improved and is off prednisone . Her mucus poops still occur they are clear and very worm like.The vet has put her on interceptor now as well. We have firm poops right now but I think this is going to go on forever.
I hate to say how much this has cost but for the love of a dog we do what we must.

Sorry for the delay on approving the comment. I was out of commission for a few weeks.
I am sorry to hear that your pup had to go through so much but am very happy to hear she is doing better.
You should pat yourself on the back for all you are doing to get to the bottom of the issue. Please let us know how things are going.
Phoebe still gets mucous poop every now and then – primarily when she is stressed. I also have to watch what I give her for treats. She loves bully sticks, but I can only give them to her periodically. Due to her sensitive constitution it gives her soft stool. Like your pup, the issue will seemingly go on forever. I am just glad that I finally can take an educated guess of cause and effect.

We have a little maltese. About a year ago she had a diarrhea so did the chicken and rice didn’t work. Then she started throwing up. She wouldn’t eat or drink at that point. We had to take her to an animal hospital . They stabilized her by giving her I’ve fluids, put her on an antibiotic, and anti nausea med. for a day or two. We got her back 3days later. Very expensive but they saved her life. When she has to have a shot is The most likely time this will happen. So before the shot we start dog flora for 2days then the day of the shot she get an anti-nausea pill once a day for 3days and the anti nausea will also constipate her a little to keep her bowels firm. I hope some some of this might helps.

My little chihuahua has IBD. I would ask your vet to place him on probiotics and a hydrolyzed diet. We almost lost our little boy.

I’m lost. This is happening to my dog Clay, a 4 year old Chihuahua. What is causing this. Can I do anything other than what I have for Clay? The vet has him on a rice and boiled chicken diet with “dog imodium”. I hope and pray I don’t lose him.
