Cold Dog Poop
limaa36 posted:
Hi, Usually my dog's poop is warm. Today, I collected his poop immediately after his process but to my surprise the poop is cold. Is there a reason or should I be alarmed ? Please advise as I am really worried. Thank you

Seems to me I remember this question from two or three years ago? Almost exactly the same thing. I don't recall seeing an answer before either. Cold poop means low internal temperature, so make sure your dog is acting normally in other ways. Either it cooled really rapidly, or his temparature is low, so you want to make sure he's not cold. I really can't think of any medical condition that would or could cause that.
