    appears to me it's not being totally digested , i use Purina Start and Grow and it's very fine, almost dust like.....that looks like it might have some scratch corn it in....but no blood i would check everyones vent

    Won't even try to guess (though the cream colored protrusions could almost look like fly eggs if I squint.

    If you find another worrisome pile of poo, place it it a clear glass bottle add water (and lid, don't forget that), shake it up and pour off the liquid. Doing this a couple times will leave all solids and tissues in the bottom for your examination with a jewelers loop or magnifying glass.

    I wouldn't worry about one oddball dungball, but keep checking for a bit.
