Mucus in Stool in Dogs

Dogs would normally have mucus in the stool. This clear or white slimy substance has the important role of lubricating the lining of the intestines for easy passage of feces from the intestines and out to the anus. A small amount of mucus is usually not a cause of concern and it mostly goes away within two days. However, if the mucus is accompanied by symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy and fever, or if excessive amount of mucus is noticed in the stool with accompanying blood, it can be an indication of a health concern.
