Reading Stools: Poopology 101

Color

Yellow or greenish stool -- indicates rapid transit (small bowel).

Black, Tarry stool -- indicates bleeding in the upper digestive tract.

Bloody stool -- red blood or clots indicate bleeding in the colon.

Pasty, light-colored stool -- indicates lack of bile (liver disease).

Large, gray, rancid-smelling stool -- indicates inadequate digestion or absorption (malabsorption syndrome).


Consistency:

Watery stool -- indicates small bowel wall irritation (toxins and severe infections).

Foamy stool -- suggests a bacterial infection.

Greasy stool -- often with oil on the air around the anus: indicates malabsorption

Excessive mucus -- a glistening or jelly like appearance: indicates colonic origin.

Odor (the more watery the stool, the greater the odor)

Food like or smelling like sour milk -- suggests both rapid transit and malabsorption.

Putrid smelling -- suggests an intestinal infection.


Frequency:

Several in an hour, each small, with straining -- suggests colitis

Three or four times a day each large -- suggests malabsorption or small bowel disorder.



Condition of Dog:


Weight loss, malnutrition -- suggests small bowel disorder.

Normal appetite, minimal weight loss -- suggests large bowel disorder.

Vomiting - small bowel origin, except for colitis.
