2. Visual Clues of Abnormal Mucus

If your dog suddenly starts to experience mucus-covered poop and also experiences diarrhea, it may indicate a bigger problem. Mucus-filled diarrhea that lasts longer than 24 hours warrants a trip to the veterinarian. Other signs that the mucus is a sign of a health issue include:

  • A large amount of mucus mixed in with large soft stools
  • Stools containing very small amounts of poop with large amounts of mucus
  • The color of the mucus changes from clear to another color
  • There is no poop in your dog’s stools, only mucus
