Can you site documentation proving this?

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

middleofnowhere 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.

Harry and Lola 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

David Taggart 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.

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

Gretchen 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.

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