I know what it sounds like —and I’m not proud of it. Others may brush it off as a smelly inconvenience, but for self-proclaimed pet parents like me, OBSESSING OVER WHAT COMES OUT OF THEM IS A SMALL PRICE TO PAY. In fact, it’s a serious matter, as it is a key indicator of their overall health and well-being. So when Cooper’s poop started taking on a life of its own and changed in color and consistency, I was beyond concerned.
At first, I figured it was just the classic case of a stomach bug, because we had recently changed his diet and switched brands. But when the firm piles turned into un-scoopable stinky brown puddles, I knew that something was off with my precious pup.
You see, Cooper is a Border Collie, so you can imagine how much he enjoys zoomies and playing with other dogs. He’s also a bit of an escape artist, so we have to keep him on a leash most of the time when he is outside, even if it’s just in the backyard or on walks.
But lately… something has changed.
