What causes runny mucus dog stools?


Answer by  katharine (3981)

There are numerous things that can cause this. It is most likely an internal parasite, such as worms, giardia, or coccidia.

An intestinal infection. The infection causes scarring on the lower intestinal lining which causes mucus to accumulate. This mucus is released with defecation.

I think it may be the psychological basis, I would not exclude. But, first eliminate all physical causes are possible.

Most often the cause is worms or some other parasite. You need to take your dog to the vet because it'll definitely take medicine to cure whatever the cause is.

Mucus in a dogs stool can be a sign of a change in their diet. It can mean a problem with their difestive track as well. Contact your Vet.
