clear liquid in poop

When Thunder went poop today I noticed it was pretty soft poop and with it was a little blob of clear liquid. It looked almost like when some one spits a logey(not sure the spelling). The consistency was different from his poop thats what made me notice it, plus I am paranoid and try to check out his poop when ever I can. Thunder has also been throwing up 2 or 4 times the past couple of days clear liquid, its not a large amount. He has been keeping his food down fine but he has been a bit reluctant to eat his food. He will take a few bites of food and leave it and come back later. When before he would devour his food in one sitting. I read somehwhere he may have a parasite. Has any one had any expierecne with this? His behavior other then what I have mentioned has been the same. I am probably going to make an apt. with the vet for Thursday, that the only day I have off, but if any one knows about these symptoms and info would be great.

Sometimes a bit of mucus can be present in the stool, but if there are other symptoms that are coinciding you might want to have a vet take a look.

I would take him to the vet... sooner than Thursday if possible. Mucousy stools and frequent vomiting are something to be pretty concerned about. Hope he is better soon.

My girl did the same thing, very loose stool, threw up foam and wouldn't eat much. Gave her rice and boiled chicken, still the same. Took her to the vet, she has a intestinal bacterial & yeast infection. They did a fecal and a fecal float. She has been on an antibiotic for two days and is already better. Vet said she probably ate something she shouldn't have. ( Not surprising, she will eat anything, even dirt ) I think somewhere along the bloodline a goat snuck in .

Take a stool sample into the vet--they can diagnose that way also. That way you can start medicine early if needed and not miss work.

When I got my pup at 9 weeks, she did the exact same thing. Mucus in her poop and throwing up foamy stuff. I was worried about parvo, worms, etc., took her to the vet and it turned out to be round worms. So everything turned out great. But it could be alot of different things so a trip to the vet is a must.

When a pup has loose stool you ALWAYS need to do a stool sample first, their are to many things that can be going on such as coccidia, giardia, parasites, bacteria and of course Parvo, after all these are negative is when you can try home remedies!

Agreed.

Add to that, the pup is not eating normally, and my worrying mind goes to places like ingested foreign object, partial blockage, etc, in addition to all the other possible issues already mentioned by other posters.

I would NOT wait 'til Thursday, OP--see if your vet will let you drop pup on way in to work, pick up after.
