Dogs with Mucus in Their Stool

Tuesday, June 18, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

If you notice mucus in your dogs stool, don’t panic. Pet MD describes the condition and what you can do about it.

If your dog has mucus in the stool, this is what you can expect to happen next:

Medication: A small amount of mucus in the stool of a dog who is otherwise feeling fine (eating well, happy, active, no diarrhea, etc.) does not require treatment with medications, but a probiotic supplement may help. More severe cases will require medical therapy that varies with the underlying cause.

Diet: Sometimes switching to a highly digestible diet or adding additional fiber to the diet will help dogs with mucus in the stool. Boiled white meat chicken (no skin or bones), white rice, and a teaspoon to a tablespoon (depending on the size of the dog) of canned pumpkin is a good, homemade option that can be safely fed for a few days.
