A (nother) poop thread -with pictures!

Postby maxs_mommy » Mon Jan 16, 2017 11:51 pm

Something is in Max's poop! I texted the vet the pics below and she didn't think they were tapes. There were A LOT if them this morning, fewer tonight. To give you a visual, they're semi-translucent jelly looking rice-sized bits...And gross. Max has been dropping weight even with a food increase and a meds decrease and I'm sure this has something to do with it. I just can't treat it until I know what it is. The stool sample is going to the vet tomorrow for a float. Any ideas?

Yuck. Could it be something in his food that is coming through undigested, like some sort of grain? Something he is eating in the yard? What is he currently eating?

So...I'm an idiot. It's orange pulp. Undigested orange pulp. I'd forgotten we added some slices to his food offhand after he tried to chomp an orange. The vet was really nice about it but doh!

Well that's a relief. What about the weight loss though? Any ideas there?

No, I wish. Going off his trilostane for a few days to see if he perks up.

I wish I had seen this earlier to put your mind at ease—I knew immediately it was a citrus pulp!!!! Hahahaha...I have to be good at *something*! ;) If you ever give Max any chia seeds or kiwi, don't panic when you see weird black dots in poops!

Oh goodness, I hadn't even thought about kiwi, which he gets sometimes. Glad you could identify! I'll send you a poop pm next time. Lol
