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.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
