If you feed raw, then white crumbly stool can indicate too much bone. If you are feeding kibble, then it may indicate a lack of hydration. Is there straining or pain when she goes? Has it just started, or has it always been that way? A discussion with your vet, along with a stool sample could put your mind at ease.
It could be dehydration. Have you noticed any decrease of water intake?
I checked out Tiger's profile page and you say that he likes to eat Rib bones? I am not an expert on this, but this could be the problem if he has swallowed a rib bone. Please stop giving him these. Purchase Nylabones or safer treats for him to chew on.
