Customer Question

2 year old, female lab/coonhound mix. Dry nose, slight difficulty with bowl movements (almost constipated) and hasn't ate in 24 hours. Should I be concerned?
My boyfriend and I broke up a few weeks ago and I moved out with her. She is in new home away from him and his dog. Thinking it could be stress related but it just started in last couple days.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

When did she last pass stool?

Has she been drinking at all?

Any retching, gagging drooling, lip licking, or vomiting?

If you press on her belly,does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants,chemicals, etc)?
