Hello, I'm Dr. Luke and I would be happy to help you with your question. I am so sorry about your pet. I have over 19 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Are you available to discuss this situation online at this time? (if you get a phone call prompt from the system, please disregard as I am unable to do a phone call at this time).
***************

Cat poop, while not ideal, is usually fine for a dog to eat.

Yellow-orange urine just indicates that either your dog's kidneys are working really well or that they have been holding on for a while. It is not related to carrot eating.

All dog's have occasional periods where they are unwell and may not eat. This should not last longer than 24-48hrs though. If it does then I would be visiting the vet

**************************
Your satisfaction is my goal and I welcome any follow-up questions that you may have. Your 5-star rating at the conclusion of this correspondence is most appreciated and bonuses are always welcome. Regards, ***** *****
