Welcome to the forum!

Do the doogers have access to the yard and if so have you checked all around to see what might be falling?

I hate to ask this.... but can you describe the poopy object?
(colour size etc.) Is it just 1 object per poo or multiple objects?

fecal test - good idea Winston - if it really is some kind of foreign object like a nut, I'm guessing the techs can see that. If it's a worm or parasite - they'll surely see that as well.

Maybe squirrels are bringing the nuts into the yard. I kept finding walnut shells in my yard and there are no walnuts trees in sight. A neighbor feed walnuts to the squirrels and they buried all over the place and even in a person flower pots.
