Default Green stool?

So, we've had our pup a little over a week now, and have finally finished the transition to her new food. She still had some loose stool (like pudding consistency) over the last few days, so I gave her a teaspoon of pumpkin to firm things up.. which it did!

But I noticed that every so often her stool is green... there is no sign of blood in it, and I don't know if the pumpkin would work to firm it if she was truly sick or something, but is this something I should be concerned about? Or is she just adjusting to her new food still? She also had half a carrot last night... She's still energetic, has her appetite and is drinking enough water.

She has a vet appointment booked for this Friday for her second boosters and general checkup.

Thanks for the response!... It had been just over 10 years since I last had a puppy... and I feel like I'm constantly worrying over the most menial things xD But better safe then sorry I guess!
