Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) What is Bella eating currently? 2) Are you seeing any soft stool or diarrhea? 3) Any blood in the stool? 4) Any vomiting? 5) How often is she defecating?
You can immediately start by giving her 1tsp per 10# ***** mineral oil. This can be done up to twice daily and should produce a BM within 24 hours. You may need to mix it into something palatable, such as her food, to get her to consume it readily. Keep giving the pumpkin, as well, and be watchful of any fecal production and consumption due to stress. Most dogs who have not defecated in 5 days would not be eating well, which suggests she is either going somewhere that hasn't been found or hiding the evidence if she is going.Hopefully this treatment will have her back to 'normal' soon.
