    Does your dog chew a lot of bones or antlers? When mine chew a lot on a new antler, they can get the very crumbly whitish poop. If you're concerned, you should take the poop sample to the vet, though. A vet will be able to help much more than we can.

    Could your pup have gotten into anything and chewed it up? Looks kinda like this might have happened.....when they do this it can cause all kinds of havoc. Let us know what the vet says.

    I would check with a vet to see if there's any obstruction that could be causing the strain. Otherwise, it could be something she ate (or more than one something). Check with a vet, but I would personally cut out treats for the time being (including any raw bones, antlers, bully sticks, or other treats), and stick with just her regular dog food. When you are outside with her, make sure she doesn't eat anything weird (my vet has always told me to watch out for oak tree seeds, because that can cause stomach upset). Monitor her when she's playing with any toy that she can tear apart to make sure she's not eating any of it, and just generally make sure she's not picking things from the garbage, or food off the floor, etc. Once you have her down to JUST her dog food, you may find that her poop starts to look better. Then you can slowly re-introduce some treats, one by one. That way, you may be able to track down the culprit if, indeed, the problem is food-related.

    If you can see little rice like grains (white or covered brown) could be round worm or whip worm infestation.
    If your dog's poo looks like that for more than 48 hours or daily you might want to take him/her in for an exam and worm testing.

    Ther is a website that explains poop color for dogs, grey white poop indicates blockage where the bile is not helping/ mixing in the intestine. Dog dodo should be somewhat firm and compact and able to pick it up without it spilling. I would suggest to take your dog in, that's not normal
