Very tiny white specs in Dog Stool

My pup is almost 8 months old, and out of nowhere I just noticed these white tiny specs in her stool. Last night she had a fairly loose stool, but tiny white specs in it.


*** Be Advised I will Attach A Picture**


She also had them in her stool this morning, except this stool was firm and regular like all the rest of hers have been. She is on Sentinel Spectrum and Frontline Plus which she get's every month. I'm not sure if this is a type of worm or not? As well as I'm not sure where she would've gotten it. I just wanted to ask around before I was forced to spend $50 on a fecal sample at the vet.

do they move? don't quite look like tapeworms, but if they move, that is what they are

otherwise - did she eat a plant or flower with tiny white petals???

They don't move, they're just there and I have no idea what they are!

slice through that log and see if they are in the interior.

these look to be totally on the surface

if you look on the leaves and behind and to the lower left hand corner of the "log" (picture) you will a cluster of
these little white things in the depression in the stone or earth.

seriously I need to wash my eyes after this .

possibly not even living -- maybe some material from lawn care product?

I do think they are just on the surface, I am going to go double check and check the lawn as well

Take a sample to the vet for a fecal test. I am glad we can't smell this close-up.

I wish there were a curtain that the viewer needs to pull back or a click on this to view . Each time I visit this thread I am confronted with the poop. High Definition.

I think there is something in the environment which is blowing across and catching because the poop is moist .

there is lots of "it" in the picture no where near the poop.

how long after evacuation of said poop was the picture taken?

If it sat for some time then they could be fly larva -- not an entomologist ---
maybe NancyJ with her cadaver work can identify larva as they arrive in a specific order

if you had that much larva then you have too much indigested organic material in the stool.

raw fed dogs tend to have boney residue with little organic material - tends not to attract flies as
there is nothing there for them.

I really do apologize for the overly large picture of just dog stool lol! But the picture was taken shortly after, I went back inside to grab a bag to pick it up and then I noticed "it". Really am unsure what it is. Dog seems to be perfectly healthy, plenty of water, eating, wanting to play/go on walks. Nothing abnormal. Just this stool. Is it possible for it to be dead roundworm that is leaving the system? I'm not sure. Maybe have to call up the vet.
