    About a week ago I found a watery poop on the driveway, then yesterday I saw the same looking poop. The watery part is clear, but it dried white (if that info is important). I want know if that is normal.

    My 7 week old puppy ate the first poop, so I'm worried that the chicken might be sick and that might make my puppy sick, although he isn't showing any symptoms of being sick. I try to stop him from eating every poop he finds, but that's like gourmet steak to him :sick

    Thanks!

    Looks like a normal hot weather poop.

    I wouldn’t worry about it or the fact that a puppy ate a chicken poop.
    All dogs love chicken poop.

    This doesn’t mean you should let him though because he could get sick and he could also pick up parasites.
    At seven weeks though, your puppy has at least two more wormings to go at the vets before he gets his last puppy shots.
