• hello- it's kinda hard to describe but does anyone know why one of my boys would poop slimmy, membrane-like, moucus looking poop?? sorry its not the prettiest picture, but i dont know what it is from?? i got a new bag of treats, same brand different flavor, but they only get about 4-6 a day, and they are mini size. thanks!


  • I have seen that a few times, and it's always been when a new treat was introduced, or if they ate too many veggies that day. Try to not give him the treats for a few days and see if it changes, and if it does then you have your answer and those treats will all have to be eaten by the other pup or the garbage disposal lol.


  • thanks for the advise- i'll stop those treats and see how it goes..


  • The slime covered poop usually means they've eaten something that has upset their digestive system–could either be something bad or something new--or just digestive system upset in general. Hopefully, it will clear up quickly. I think it's not quite as bad as having liquid poop squirting out frequently.


  • Does your B lick their butt, Sahara licks and licks, and licks at times, for 5-10mins at a time. Not all the time, but there are days, man I mean she is licking, and licking, smelling, lick, smell, lick. Anyone else had their B do this?

    Typically that means that her anal glands need to be expressed

    Yep mine both do this when I need to empty their glands

    Yes–it's almost certainly anal glands when they lick like that.


  • Oh boy. Emptying an anal gland? How on earth does one do that? (And why? <- genuine question from a neophyte) 😕
