Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about your dog. What is her name? How old is she? Is she posturing to go and straining? Again, she is eating and drinking very well at this time?

Thank you for answering those questions about Cinny. In a situation like this, it wouldn't seem to be a panic situation. She is not vomiting. She is eating and drinking well. More than likely she needs some more time to have normal stools start to build up and pass. IN situations where a dog has had diarrhea, when things start to get better with the colonic environment (normal stools forming), they actually don't have stools for a few days as the fecal material is building up and waiting to pass. AS long as she's eating and drinking well, I wouldn't feel that the situation is one that needs anything more than time.
