Bright green poop! Should I be worried?

I just got back from bringing the two dogs for a walk. Both pooped on the way and both had bright green poop! One dogs poop was greener than the other.

I mean it was really really green, no hint of brown, the colour of a postbox.

I have had dogs for years and I've never seen this.

What could this be?

They are both fed on Royal Canin Dermacomfort mini 26.

They haven't been eating those green dentachew type things lately by any chance? I got some free at the dog expo a while back and it did turn my dog's poo bright green!

Hmm..they had tesco value dentasticks yesterday but they weren't green. They were brown in colour.

It looked exactly like this, my older dogs was the shade of the middle one and the pup's more the shade of the ones around it. .

That photo kind of freaks me out because the website it's from is using it as an example of a reaction to rat poison!

They are both in great form however and neither have been anywhere except the back garden and on their walks. We don't keep rat poison in the house or garden and they are fully supervised on the leash while walking.

Have you got kids?

I rang the vet on call and he said that it could be from eating grass. He said to watch them and if they seem unwell or vomit to call him right away.

I'm still sort of freaked out. Our grass isn't even as green as this poop! I had a dog who died from rat poisoning years ago so it's a sore point with me .
