My doggie Holly, a Cairn Terrier, was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphatic Leuk. a few months ago. She has slowed down but not anaemic yet tho wbc is very high
However, no one can seemingly figure out why she is now having GREEN Diarrhea?? We have noticed green tinges in the stool for a while now but it was always normal consistancy. She has cut back on her food but eating fairly well. Her water intake is normal. Any one ever seen this or have any ideas about this condition?

diarrhea along with abnormalities in the color can be a result of the chemotherapy. If you havenb\'t already contacted your vet hospital to answer this maybe you should. It could be that the dosage is not an efficient amount or is being overdosed. Otherwise it is fairly common in patients that are taking in high doses chemo.
