Hello! Well, this is my first post here, and I hope there's someone out there who can help me out. Basically I'd like to know if my dogs' poop is normal or if there's something I should be worried about! I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, male and female (4 years and 5 years old). Over the past couple of weeks, their poop has been coming out like this at least once a day (brace yourselves!): I didn't know how else to describe the above, so I thought a picture would be better. It's not like this every time they go to poop. When it is like this, both dogs seem to strain more towards the end of the movement and take longer than normal to finish. Their diet had been changed very gradually since we got them at the end of May. They were on a mixture of cheap supermarket tinned food and supermarket biscuits. With diet advice we have slowly moved them over to a diet of dry healthy biscuits with a small amount of meat and rice based food (because they will not eat the biscuits without a little wet food in there too). Now this is happening to their poop... Both of them have this "problem" and sometimes the stools are even a little softer than they really should be. Is it because the food may be too rich for their tummys? Or maybe something more sinister? I don't know whether I'm worrying over nothing, but I hope someone out there has some suggestions on what might be going on..... Thank you!
