    I have sent some of my dogs poo samples to wormcount and the results have come back as clear from worms but they have commented that my Puppy has ' a low level of undigested oil in the sample'.
    I have no idea of the significance of this. He and the other dogs are all raw fed. Has anyone else had this?

    Ok thanks. I won't panic then. I don't remember him having anything oily before the samples were taken but can't be sure. He eats the same as the other dogs and their samples were normal. I will repeat the test in 3 months I think and see if it is normal then.
