Yellow Poop ....

10 posts in this topic

I noticed a couple of weeks ago that our older GSD had yellow poop (he was away from home 5 out of 7 days). When I questioned my brother if he had eaten anything ... then only think he could think of was the curried egg sandwichs (who buys curried egg sandwiches for the dog and then complains about farting!!!!).

I didn't think much more of it assuming it was something he was eating ...

I have just done another poo scoop and found some more yellow poop ... now I know he hasn't been eating curried egg sandwiches (they are both fed raw) ... so being a little bored, I decided to google "yellow poop" ... and am now very worried!!! ;)

Pancreatitis and Giardia were 2 things mentioned ... What are the symptoms? What tests are involved to rule them out?

Now my older boy had issues with urinating and was eventually desexed with a suspect prostate ... but I was not convinced that was really the problem. The specialists didn't seem absolutely certain as to what the problem actually was. Even now if he is confined for any length of time (more then an hour) then he still has trouble urinating (comes out as a dribble and not a stream) - so he needs free access to outside area at all times so he can urinate as he wants.

I am now wondering if his problems were not caused by the "suspect prostate" but are something else ...

If your dog appears normal, maybe give it a couple of days to see if the stools return to normal colour after the curry eggs?

If you're really worried and/or your dog seems not itself in anyway pop off to the Vet :o

He has been in my care for over a week now - so I know he hasn't eaten anything yellow in colour.

He appears "normal" as such but to be honest he hasn't really fully recovered from his illness in Nov 2008 and then his paralysis tick in Sept 2009. He tires easierly and doesn't seem as happy and playful as he used to be. We put some of this down to the new addition (the brat) which came into the family in May 2009 ...

I was never fully convinced that his illness in Nov 2008 was fully due to a suspect prostate as the specialist implied - they haven't been able to give me a full explaination as to what happened. I was told that having him desexed would fix the issue but for him to still have issues urinating when confined for an length of time is a big concern to me.

He has been given a clean bill of health by his local vet ... but I just have a nagging little voice in my head asking ... what if there is something we are missing.

Tilly if it is giardia his poop will go super runny quite quickly and he will go flat (as in no energy). Some worming stuff (can't remember if it is Baycox or Panacur) fixes it. I also found one inner health plus tablet for a couple of days helped immensely.

I can't help with pancreatitis though sorry.

Thanks AMS - both dogs had explosive liquid poos for a couple of days but they were ok. I put it down to the fact they had some roo which can be a bit rich for them. I gave them some Inner Health plus and it cleared up quickly.

Thanks Tiggy - they have had turkey necks recently.

Maybe I am just worrying about nothing but I just have the little nagging feeling something is just not right ...

Shyla has yellow poos on and off lately, it seemed to have started since she was on (and is currently on again) anti inflammatory tablets. She also gets raw meaty bones every night, so I think a combination of those or just the bones or something may be the cause.. the poops are totally firm and normal so I wasn't that worried, and mostly they are not yellow, just randomly :thumbsup:

Our English Bull Terrier had yellow poop for several days in a row last year, it ended up being pancreatitis and he needed to be hospitalized for 4 days.

Why not put your mind at ease by taking a sample of the yellow poo to your vet? That way you will get the correct tests done...
