Pebbles in stool

by Russell Hall

We have rescued our two year old GP. Super dog but today I found some pebbles in his stool. Gosh, he gets Science diet mixed with canned food. Healthy treats too. What is this about? I can't seem to search this website for previous answers.

He may be eating pebbles hence they are in his stool.

Also, check out the ingredients in Science diet. Chicken is the first ingredient but it's been so processed there isn't much goodness left in it.

Dogs do not process grains. Those are fillers hence the reason your dog has big poops. You might looked into a baked kibble from your pet supply store or even consider the pure form of food, raw. Google search in your area for raw dog diet for dogs. Companies will have balanced portions for you.

Here is a series of videos by Dr. Karen Becker:

Also, if he isn't eating pebbles, there is something that he is eating that he is not digesting.

If you can't determine what it is with the naked eye, I suggest you take a sample into your vet for further examination.
