Doggy &quot discharge&quot ?
HI.I have a 6 month old cross breed femail terrier of some sorts. I got her from the SPCA. She appears healthy etc. Ive noticed that in her bed there are some sort of *rice grain like* " droppings" . I cant see that they are " alive" . It looks like when they " appear"  or are produced, they are soft, because some of them are smeared on the bed, the others harden. Do you know what causes this? Thank you. Cindy

Dear Cindy

It sounds like discharge from the anal glands. These can be emptied or removed.
