Bob_McBob The green colour is caused by biliverdin from the placenta. See the section on "separation of placental sites" here.

Also check out this description and series of photos of a difficult birth:

carmspack not this "Some sort of genetic issue that they think comes from eating the placenta"

but this "The cause of the green coloring was believed to be the result of exposure to a substance in the placenta."

Curtis From the article:

"The male and female pair were part of a litter of five puppies, and were much smaller and weaker than their siblings. The female puppy, however, died shortly after birth. The male puppy is still alive, but is weak and gradually losing its green hue.

This isnít the first case of a green puppy being born, according to The Huffington Post. A Labrador puppy was born green in England two years ago, but lost its hue after 10 days. The cause of the green coloring was believed to be the result of exposure to a substance in the placenta."

Some sort of genetic issue that they think comes from eating the placenta. Weird.
