• Hi! There’s been these white flat triangular pieces in my dogs feces for a couple days on and off. The pieces are about a length that is equivalent to the girth of his poop.

    Hi Tiffany,

    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. If possible you should take a sample of the feces with the triangular piece in it. This could be a sign of an underlying parasite infection or medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of this after they have examined your pet. They will likely recommend doing a fecal tests to look for intestinal parasites or any other abnormalities in the feces. Any treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause of his symptoms.
