Here is a new one!! Hair in stool.

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

Well this is new to me....Pearl would poop and start yipping and running...I took her to the vet and he thougth maybe anal glands. Well it cooled down for a few days and now started back up...I examined the stool and found it to be stool on the outside and all hair on the inside. I kept a sample to take to the vet tomorrow. She is getting it from playing with our Golden Retrvr and bitting playfully and getting a mouth full of hair. I have benn on double duty with sweeping, vacumning and swiftering...anyone heard of this?

Do a search in the Dogster forums for the word "Dingleberry". You'll find a really funny thread all about this. smile

Hey, it does hurt! I have a bad habit of eating the fuzz that I pull out of my squeeky toy and when I poop it out it doesn't want to go. Sometimes it will hang there and my mom has to pull it out and that really hurts. It looks like poop but it full of fuzz. My mom gets mad at me when she catches me eating the fuzz and now she won't buy my favorite toys anymore if they have stuffing in them. I can't help it but I know how bad it would be if the fuzz got stuck inside me and I would have to have surgery. I am trying to stop this habit and mom watches me all the time. DON'T eat fuzz or hair!

Dogs that shed and like their coats are subject to having hair in their stools as well. It's fairly common. I would say large clumps that you see are uncommon and indicate that your dog is eating hair balls around the house.

We had this problem too. Mom is very careful now because there is a chance the hair can get wrapped up in your intestines and be fatal.

My Mommy has long hair and sometimes I get one of those hairs. The poop is out but it is connected to the long piece of hair that is still in my butt! BOL! Mommy has to come to the rescue.

Is that snack- for me??

Lizzie and I both sometimes eat mom's hair. It never seems to be a problem until we go potty and we end up with danglers from mom's hair red face Nothing so humiliation for me to be trotting around with a trail of THAT! Thankfully mom always takes care of it for me.
