Very black poo in 15mo - I am freaking out that this means blood, can anyone reassure me?

Step away from the google!!

It does sound worrying. I'd be off to the docs with a sample if possible.

Could it be something like an ingested crayon?? My dog regularly does technicolour poos for that reason.

Sorry to not offer any better ideas. Hope you get a more sensible response soon.

Can't bananas turn it black? Have to admit they don't with DD3 though.

sometimes my poo is v dark but i have worked out that it coincides with my vast increase in eating rocket etc. I agree tyou should stop using google. My eye tremor is currently diagnosed on google as aneurysm or MS and i should drink more caffeine to rid myself of this., Also possible Parkinsons disease

Does he seem ok otherwise though?

Dark chocolate is usually to blame in this house!

rofl at ForSale's eye tremor
you need sleep, not caffeine, woman!

meanwhile lapin do not worry about his poo unless he comes down with any other symptoms (diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, tummy pain)
