I have had my dogs on California Natural chicken and rice for about 4 weeks now.
At first, my 8 month old Tuki's poops were nice n small and firm. Last weekend, she had diarrhea, and on a separate poop which was soft, had light/white specks throughout it. The specs are not moving, and are smaller than grains of rice, and not a uniform size, looks almost as if someone crushed up sesame seeds. She has been having runny poops for a few days now, but not all of them have these specks in them (that I can see, anyway).
My curiosity got the best of me, and I took one of these little specks, smushed it, and it just left a tiny white smudge. (Sorry if that grosses anyone out).
I'm not sure what's up.. if she was doing OK with the California natural after 2-3 weeks, then all of a sudden go soft and have these specks in the poo?
I had read (in a yahoo answer) that someone mentioned certain foods (they said Canidae as an example) lead to dogs having white specks in the poop?
also, she had one poop about 2 days ago which had some red blood on the outside of it. Never saw any blood after or before that one though.
