Is the poop stinkier , like kinda foul nasty smelling? Different odor than normal? You might have her checked for Giardia .

My dog's poop gets mucous when her colitis flares up.
Why does she have colitis? I believe having been treated for giardia 3x when she was younger.

Sorry, I'm no help because I never bother checking my dogs poop (too many of them and too big an area to check). :)

Warm weather causes worm infestation. Treat her with garlic and ground pumpkin seeds ( natural deworming) first to see if it stops if she had colitis. But, signs of colitis is painful defecation and often continuous diarrhea.
What do you feed your dog? It could be the amount of starch in food, or it could be too soft food like cooked lungs. Turn onto chiken and rice, rice saturates the excess mosture, and provide raw beef bones daily, not all chewed bone mass is digested, a part of it goes through the guts and cleans them like a brush.

Having an EPI dog, as soon as I see mucus stools - I know he has SIBO.

Signs of SID/SIBO can be yellow tinges to the stools, continued loose/soft stools, or “iffy” stools, intermittent sloppy stools, mucus coating on stools, flatulence, lack of appetite, stomach noises, crankiness, lethargic, low or low-normal B12

In the case of my dogs that had this about 10 years ago, I accidentally discovered the cause being the raw local honey I was giving in hopes of dealing with allergies.

Can you site documentation proving this?

My dogs have lived through many years of warm weather and they do NOT get worms from it.

My girl is on a raw diet. Just today made it 1 full month raw. I am giving raw honey so I might stop and see if that helps. She did just have a bout of diarrhea for a couple days then back to solid stool just had a little mucus oon it couype of times and remember reading that could be normal when switching ro raw in the first few months??
