    Default What Does White Poo Mean?

    I have noticed that my dog sometimes has white poo. This is fresh poo (I pick it up everyday) so it hasn't been sitting there for a week. I have noticed that it's often after I have given him bones- could this be a contributor?

    well i know with my snake, that when i give him a rat i get a black poo and a white poo and the white poo is the calcium...

    Chloe has these poo's too and it's usually the one after bones, so i'd say its just calcium, at least thats what i've been putting it down to.

    Yes, it certainly is the bone content, NN.

    You will notice a great difference in the faeces of dogs who eat meat to those of dogs when they eat commercial dry food etc.

    Dry food faeces will be darker, and it takes a heck of a lot longer to go through their digestive tract.

    Fresh food digests much more quickly, comes out the other end usually within 4 hours or so, and also is lighter in colour and goes white and chalky fairly quickly. BTW, it also breaks down and biodegrades (sort of for lack of a better and more lengthy description lol) into the ground (if left) far more speedily than dry food faeces.

    Fresh food faeces (and this includes bones, naturally) are also an often smaller mass.

    I know this thread is a little old, but I have to say this...


    My boyfriends dad told his 3yr old son that white poos taste like minties. When they are in the backyard picking up the poo, his son says about the brown ones "I can't eat them yet can I daddy?" LOL









    BTW the 3yr old has never tasted a white poo! hehe
