    A little bit ago my dog Jasper started having these strange little pellets in her poop. She has been on a bland diet since a minor blockage in her stomach caused by a rawhide and she is transitioning back. We have her eating rice, boiled chicken, and a quarter cup of her kibble. We have absolutely no idea what these could be whether it is tape worm eggs or some byproduct of her food. If anyone knows anything about these pellets please let us know.

    They are not really the right shape for tapeworm eggs, but the photo doesn't show all that much detail. Do they move at all? What sort of rice are you using?

    Probably the rice. She isn't digesting it. I would stop feeding rice. Is she on a probiotic?
