Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Baby carrots are one of Bode's favorite treats. We didn't have them for awhile just due to lack of grocery shopping. We started giving them again recently and now his poop has a definite orange tint to it. Before, you would just kind of see little carrot pieces in his stools, not like this. Does anyone else notice this?

We are trying to get some health stuff figured out, so I'm wondering if this is carrot related or related to whatever is going on with him. I'm going to mention it to the vet either way when I call her today with an update on him.

Yep, I've fed Saber raw baby carrots and his poop had the same orange tint you're describing.

We ran out of baby carrots too and the poops are a much darker brown and even firmer. We bought more but I'm not going to give her as many as I used to give.

We give all our dogs carrots...not too many but maybe 2-3 every other or third day. Too many are not suppose to be good but I do not remember why or what is too many. Sorry.
We do see carrot bit but not orange tint. They act as if I am feeding raw steak they huddle around and beg (plus they are so obiedient when the carrot is in hand!)
Good luck on figuring out Bode's health issues.

I have only one dog that will eat carrots in fact she would probably eat a entire meal of vegies.
Sorry I got away from your question, when she eats alot of carrots I do see a orange color in her poop not really parts of the carrots but it is orange color where my other pups is more brown.

The only reason why carrots should be limited is their sugar count, but when you factor in how much is actually digested and processed in raw carrots (because they're difficult to break down- as you see from the pieces in their feces) it's not too bad at all.

Same whew here I was limiting to the not ever day with 2-3 mini but looks like I can move it up to an everyday! Yeah they will love me!
