Honey's poop was orange this morning. It was slightly softer than usual, but still well formed. It was a little bit slimy.
Very occasionally, Honey's poop will have tinges of orange in pieces of it, which my vet said was from digesting too fast. But this morning it was all the same color. It wasn't deep orange - it was light brown with a light orange hue, sort of.
I'm trying not to freak out. I'm waiting for the vet's office to call me back, so in the mean time I'm wondering what could have caused this?
No change in diet (although she did just start a new bag of food). Yesterday there was a thunderstorm while I was at work and when I got home (about an hour later) she was very upset - panting and whimpering. She breathed rapidly for about an hour afterwards, but her temperature was normal, and once she calmed down, nothing else was out of sorts.
Earlier this week it was very hot, and she was somewhat exercise intolerant. I attributed it to the heat and humidity (very humid)! I was somewhat concerned that she got hot so quickly, but she is a black dog, the sun was strong, and she has always been more heat intolerant than other dogs I've had.
Laos, she was slightly slower than usual on our walk this morning, and it wasn't hot - it was about 60 degrees and drizzling.
Do you think this could be from the stress of the storm yesterday, or could something more sinister be going on here? All I have read about orange poop says it's a sign of liver problems, anemia, or "nothing"...
Anyone seen orange poop before?
