Every poop is an inside scoop.

If we scoop on average, 1-5 poops a day, that's 365-1825 poops per year. All this poop scooping, but have you ever wondered what message your dog's health is sending you being carried around in a little plastic bag?

Our dog's poop can hold the secret to assess their health - stool samples are the best yardstick of a dog's inner health.

Until the Up dog collar is invented, which would allow our dog to speak and tell us whether their tummy is bothering them, we have to use the tools that are available to us. As thoughtful dog owners who care about the health of our dog, we need to stay alert for signs of trouble or if something is not agreeing with them. And lucky for us, we get 1-5 of those signs a day.

So next time you’re cleaning up nature’s call, take a peep at our handy chart to understand what their poop is telling you.Here is a guide to memorize to determine how your dog’s health is looking:

If you are noticing after using this chart that your pup is continually having “business” that is not where it should be, it is time to evaluate what you are feeding your pup. Just like what you feed yourself, the quality of the ingredients makes a difference for all components of your health.
