Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your pup is so sick!
First, how old is she and is she spayed? What kind of food does she usually eat?
Just to confirm, she is straining to defecate but there is only a little liquid coming out? Also, her vulva is swollen?
There are no safe over-the-counter enemas for dogs. The human products are poisonous to dogs. Miralax is a safe stools softener, but the dog needs to be eating and not be blocked up to begin with.
Please let me know the answers to these questions and we can figure out how to care for your pup.
Okay, thanks for the update. Sorry I was slow to respond, I was working my day job today.
How is your pup this evening? Is she eating okay? Did she pass any stool today?
Also, is she having a heat cycle right now?
