I see a lot of white droppings around the complex dog potty area. And I know from time to time my dog has White color stools. Well yellowish crusty stools (When she eats something she shouldn't usually)
Is that something to be concerned about and if there is a dog that is constantly having white stools should I be concerned that that dog is sick and might pass something on to my dogs. (the owner isn't cleaning up after their dog like we are required to do)
I mean just all this poop lying around could this dog make my dog sick?
Also what could be wrong causing that and how serious could this dogs sickness be and can it be transmitted through the droppings and would the owner be in trouble if other dogs got sick for not cleaning up after their dog (Its the law)
I don't think that there is cause for alarm, other than the owner of the dog should have it bagged and set in front of their door!
It is not uncommon for dogs who eat a raw diet or a diet rich in bone meal to have a white-yellowish stool. When my dogs eat a new knucklebone, their poo is white. It is a normal, firm stool that turns to powder within a few days.
That said, I would try to keep my dog away from any foreign poo. Try to watch from your window so you can report the poo violator, though! Good luck...
Our dogs have chalk white poo after they've eaten bones. I agree the dog owner should pick up after the dog. It is a health hazard to leave the mess where it dropped. It not only will attract flies and other insects (I'm still seeing them even though it's been down to freezing temperatures here) which carry a lot of diseases but if the dog itself has any diseases or intestinal parasites they can be passed on to other dogs through its feces. Most places have laws against failing to pick up after your dog. If the owner or property manager does nothing to correct the problem you might want to file a complaint with local law enforcement.
