    Are they like ORANGE orange or like light brown/diarrhea orange? If it's just the color of loose stools then it could be the food change. How long ago did you start to feed the new food and what kind of food is it? If it's like really orange then there is something wrong, my dog ate crayons when he was a pup so his poop turned colors...

    Did you switch foods all at once or do a mix? Sometimes a food change is hard on a dog's GI Tract.

    If it were my dog I'd probably run in for a check with the vet including a fecal and a Giardia Antigen. Dante had funky yellow/orange stools when he had Giardia.
