|Yellow poop can mean the liver isn't working properly or she has giardia [doubt that is it] but since we are feeding a varied diet it is hard to know if that is why this is happening. I would put her on a very consistent diet of a bit of liver, other organ, meat and some sort of calcium daily and see if poop stays the same for that period of time. She might not be absorbing the calcium and it is making the poop light colored. I doubt it, I suspect you are offering more calcium than she needs is all. A whole egg shell completely absorbed is a lot of calcium, about twice what 38 pound Max needs. If her system can take the egg shell down [usually dogs don't digest egg shell completely] and decide what it needs from it that was more than she needed and out came the excess. If you have chicken feet or small whole fish those are less than the amount of calcium Max needs and his poop shouldn't be hard and yellow if that is all the calcium he gets that day. If they turn her stool yellow and you know that isn't quite enough calcium something is going on.
I suspect she has a rock solid GIT that is doing a great job with calcium and she doesn't need as much as you think she does. And I bet that grind is bonier than you think it is. Maybe cut it with more boneless meat.
