hey all, went to clean the dog poop out of the yard today and noticed that a decent amount of my dog's stools are white. I don't know if it's just because it's getting cold in the morning with frost, or if there's seriously an issue. I am concerned about his liver and kidneys.

When he was still my roommate's dog (she decided she didn't feel like keeping him when we parted so I took him), he got into 2 whole chocolate cakes in two days. I was gone from the area, so by the time I found out a couple of days had passed and the vet said there was nothing I could do about it. My roommate thought that it was no big deal......but I've been concerned about it ever since. There was also a time that I plum forgot I had chocolate covered macademia nuts (about 10-15) in my backpack, and left him alone in the room with it while I went outside to check the mail and chat with a neighbor. When I came back in, he had eaten it. I got him to throw up right after, but I was still reminded of all of the chocolate he's eaten in such a small amount of time.

I have school throughout the day for the next week (big final projects coming up, lots of team meetings). So I'm trying to decide if I should get my dog in immediately, or if you think that it should wait a few more days to see if it improves - If he's sick I don't want him to get any sicker, but I just don't know if white stool means that he's ill. He acts like a healthy, happy puppy.

I wouldn't worry. If your boxer ate two chocolate cakes and didn't get noticeably sick right away he's probably fine. White stools I don't know about. Have you told the vet about them? That would be my big worry, the white stools that is. Also if he's acting like a happy, healthy pup he probably is. Just watch him for anything unusual.
