As good caretakers, we must always be very attentive to the color variation in the feces of our dogs, in their consistency, and if they have diarrhea or are constipated. His vomit, his excrement, and his body temperature are important indicators of his health.
In relation to your dog's poop, its shape, density, and color may vary, alerting us to different problems that need to be addressed. In Barkibu we have a group of online veterinarians to which you can go to make your query about why your dog poops in an abnormal way.
In this article, we will explain what happens to your friend if he has orange stools, so that when you ask our specialists for help, you can better formulate your question.
What symptoms does the color of my dog's stool reveal to me?
The problem with the color orange is that it is one that can easily be confused with red or yellow. At the moment in which we detect that our doggie poops in a strange way, we are alarmed and we can get to confuse the colors. Before making your query check the excrement of your furry and check if it is indeed orange or if it is a color produced by the presence of blood spots.
If indeed there are, they are usually an indication that an irritation in his digestive system is happening, usually in the colon. If you confirm that this happens to him, there is nothing to worry about, you will only have to be more careful when choosing his diet, buy quality feed, and also feed natural and moist recipes. However, if the blood continues to appear after a couple of days, it may be an internal hemorrhage.This situation requires immediate assistance.
If this blood is not opaque, but has certain reflections and even seems to shine, then the problem may be in his intestines. Record this information so that, when making your query to our veterinarians, we can give you the solution you need.
The feces of my dog are orange but without blood
If you have ruled out that your dog's poop is colored by his blood, being effectively orange, then we are talking about a symptom that point to a liver or gallbladder problem. The orange color that appears in his stools is formed when the yellow of the bile is mixed with the usual brown.
If this is your case, make us your query as soon as possible because your furry needs a thorough examination of his general health status. It happens to dogs as it does to humans. A problem in the liver is manifested through a yellowing of the whites of the eyes, gums, and, occasionally, also in the excrement. A dog with gallbladder problems can also occasionally vomit a liquid that is also yellowish or slightly orange.
Is it serious that my dog makes orange poop?
To be able to determine if his condition is serious or not, he needs a thorough examination. The vomiting of yellowish fluid or the expulsion of stools in the same color can mean poor digestion, too fast food intake, or liver disease. To assess the severity status of your dog in your home, make a continuous check of his stools.
If after a half-day or after three depositions he continues to poop orange, or it appears in combination with vomiting or other symptoms, you must urgently go to a veterinarian. If he changes his behavior, is lethargic and tired, his mucous membranes have a pale color, and his abdomen is inflamed, you have to act now.
Does your dog's poop have red blood, with a bit of mucus or vomit? If your dog's poop looks like jelly, something serious might be happening, especially if we are talking about diarrhea with blood.
How to prevent my dog from having liver diseases
Like everything about health, prevention is always the best cure. Start by optimizing the food you give him. Control his rations, distributing them in five parts throughout the day. If you notice that your dog likes to stuff himself with food, buy a feeder that separates the parts of his ranch, so he has to work hard and have a break between bites.
The best thing for his digestion is that he swallows little by little, with moderation. Do not hesitate to stand by his side and serve him slowly so he can get used to a healthier rhythm.
Now that you have all this information, leave us your query indicating if there is blood in his poop, the degree of coloration they have, if they are very liquid or solid, and how long it has been this way. Also tell us his race, weight, and age so we can give you the solution he needs.
