I think a scoring system is great for evaluating poop, because its just one of the fun pleasures of dog ownership! Here is a scoring system to know what actual diarrhea looks like as well as what ideal bowel movements look like. I see all the time what people say is "diarrhea" when in actuality its just "soft serve" because there is a difference. Please reference this chart for future reference :wink:

^^^ But if her stool looks like a score of 50 then it IS very soft. If it were firmer it would score higher :confused:

are you trying to make fun of my dog....shane is obviously a guys name...and he looks like a good looking male...

didnt know this forum was called..doginsultschat.com idk =p.
Whoa. Not making fun of your dog man...I have only seen the picture of him in your avatar and from that you can't tell the gender. And we have 3 separate dogs here at my clinic who are all female and named Shane (one of which is a golden), so its not unheard of to call a female dog Shane. Chill dude, not everyone here is out to get you :tongue: :wink:

Great chart. ((Gag)) :biggrin: Just kidding. In all honesty it is nice to have something to compare poops too. I'm glad to report that Lucky's doo doos are almost always in the 100 range. Small, on the dark side, hard, very easy to pick up. She's a great pooper! :tongue:

I heard from other websites that if the stool is very hard then it can mean the dog has ordinary constipation, and in the chart above the score is 100 for very hard can anybody explain?

Hard stool and constipation are two *completely* different things. Hard stool cannot be constipation and vice versa.

Hilarious, thanks for the laugh. :biggrin:

Could also be a sign of disease too. I have one like that with Barnum.
