2- Any other symptoms?
Please give me a few minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, the fecal content is directly related to what he eats. So, it is possible she could have gotten into some type of foreign body and this is what you are seeing in the feces. We can sometimes see mucus (jelly like) with orange color when the intestines are over active and inflamed; in a puppy common causes would be: Parasites, infections, dietary indiscretion, etc. to name a few causes. This is what you can try:
1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or imodium.2- Change her diet to rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%) until the stool is back to normal then wean her back into her regular diet.3- Consider getting her dewormed. I would recommend Panacur (fenbendazole) given once a day for 3 days, repeat after 3 weeks. You can buy Panacur in your local pet store or online (amazon.com).4- If after doing the above you do not see improvement within 24 hours I would have her checked by your a veterinarian for a hands on examination. If cost is a concern look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost.Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent.
