      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Dog won't poop

Recommended Posts

BigDaddy

I have a 3 month old GSP. She's been healthy and regular, pooping several times a day. Now it's the second day that she hasn't gone. Plus, she's really tring. She pushes and pushes but nothing comes out.

Any ideas?

Is the dog's rear end clean? Sometimes the hair can matt up and make things difficult.

I'd take the dog to the vet and have it checked out.

Do you know if she got into something? You'd be amazed what vets find in puppies tummies. I agree that a trip to the vet is in order.

Head for the vet NOW. We had a couple loose one of our pups last year. Intestines ruptured and pup didn't survive the toxic shock.

My sister's 6 month old lab ate a sportsbra and had the same issue. Some how the dog was able to shallow the thing in one piece. The vet had to remove it. She was not able to pass it. I would get the dog to the vet. Notice anything missing around the house?

I'd also say to take the pup to the vet. My one year old swallowed a corn cob earlier this year and it became lodged in his intestines. He got a lot sicker than your pup sounds, but better safe than sorry.

Thanks everyone for your tips. I called home earlier today and she WENT! Then she came in and was pawing at her bowl to eat.

I'll continue to watch her closely but I think that everything is OK.

Like Bryce said, go now. If teh intestines twist they go downhill superfast.

Get to the vet now. You do nt want to add dehydration to the mix either. The stress can aggrevate the condition, whatever it is, very fast.

Better to know and deal with it than wait and not have any choices.

Best of luck.

Plugged anal glands will pose an issue as well

I have days like that................... confused.gif

Seriously, the dog sounds constipated. No big deal.It probably ate some particularly fibrous grass.

If it were torsion, you'd know it. I had a dog die of this a while back. Horrible. Bloody. Fast. Violent and very sad.

I'm glad she went! Humorously I wish we had your problem. Ella is a pooping machine and making it difficult to house train her. grin.gif Although this might not have been a big deal, a trip to the vet (a good one) is always a safe bet.

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring.
