Having an assortment of appropriate chew toys readily available is recommended. Marrow bones are good (I use them sparingly) but I would stay away from rawhide items.

    Maybe her food isn't agreeing with her? Are the medications helping at all? I had to switch mine over to a commercial raw product and her health issues subsided almost immediately. I believe there is some kind of supplement that you can sprinkle on her food which will make her poop taste unappealing (this is a ridiculous thought, right? It should already be unappealing). You could look into that - I'm not sure what it is called. I had a Pug who liked to investigate other dogs' poops when we'd go walking and she also liked to dine from time to time on my cat's turds covered in litter and my vet wasn't overly concerned. It was just super gross to me.

    You sound like a really patient Frenchie dad, so Cassie is very lucky to have you in her corner. Keep at it - it'll get better :-)
    Thank you, I'm definitely trying!! My wife says I'm a great mom, LOL!

    I guess I never thought of carrying a chew toy outside on walks/potty time, but I suppose it's worth a shot. I haven't tried Marrow Bones, and I'm already paranoid of rawhide. I've seen the supplements that supposedly change the flavor of poo, but haven't tried them due to the fact that virtually all of the reviews on them say they don't work. I hope to get her diet to a point that she won't see the need, or that she'll at least grow out of it.

    Vet thinks stress is the culprit in her poo problems. Since her spay, she wants to run, jump and horse around with her buddies at doggy daycare, but we have her in the house trying to keep her calm and quiet. SHE HATES THAT!! Also, to combat the diarrhea, the vet prescribed Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein. He admits it's not a great food, but that the point is that it's bland enough to hopefully calm her belly/intestines down so that I can get her back on some quality food. My plan is to feed her Instinct Original Salmon, grain free.

    Thank you, I fell in love with her instantly!! Yes, I fear she already knows how to control me. But I love every moment of it!

    Well, first thing, she wants to eat everything. Rocks, sticks, leaves, dirt, etc. She swallowed the rubber backing off of a dog tag, which required a scope down the throat. Just today, there were some fairly large chunks of sticks in her stool. And just now as I'm typing this, I caught her chewing on an electrical cord. She has had diarrhea and mucus/blood in her stool ever since she was spayed a week ago. Vet put her on a prescription diet and her diarrhea just won't subside. She's on panacur, metronidazole for those issues. She also wants to eat her poop. It's a lot to correct, and a little overwhelming.
    *Pupdate* Cassie's bloody diarrhea has subsided, and stools are firming up nicely!!! I bought a short snouted muzzle to control her stick/leaf/dirt/poo eating habit, and she seems to actually like wearing it, or at least doesn't mind. She gets her stitches out from her spay tomorrow as well!! She will finally be able to go back to her favorite doggy daycare, and my wife and I may get to sleep through the night again soon, lol.

    She kinda looks like something off of a horror film.
