Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi and welcome to Just Answer. I am a licensed veterinarian and will do my best to help you.
Are her stools normal?
Yes she went to the bathroom fine
Has she had any history of swallowing objects like toys, rocks, or other non-digestable objects?
well once she ate a fox tail (similar to a pine cone) that caused an abcess because it inbedded in her mouth
she is part pug and they are like little goats
Do you offer her bones to che on?
That should be chew
Yes soup bones usually
she does go to daycare three days aweek but she was not there today
Dogs that do alot of stretching, assume the bow wow position (head down, pelvis elevated) and that seem anxious frequently are dealing with a foreign body that they have swallowed. Bones are among those as they can become lodged. In general I'm not fan of feeding bones as they not only can get stuck, but they also commonly break teeth.
As far as I know she has not had a bone in a week
With foreign body ingestion the keeys to watch are for vomiting, loss of appetite, and straining to pass stools. I' m amazed at what they are able to pass, but do occasionally need to help them with a blockage through surgery.
Since she is eating and not vomiting, I would just be watchful for now. If this is persisting into tomorrow I would consult your vet and perhaps get an x-ray.
ok so do I need to take her to urgent care? She is stretching agin
ok she is wagging her tail when she stretches
I don't see any need for urgent care based on your description, but at the same time I would seek help if this persists into tomorrow. Also be aware of the risk of vomiting or diarrhea so consider that when you choose where she sleeps tonight.
could I give her a litte fish oil to help her pass
Fish oil is a digestable oil and will not have any benefit. Mineral oil, administered in food will lubricate things but will create a mess when it passes as she won;'t be able to control it. I would not choose this at this point.
Ok I will wait
You could give half a pepcid or pepto bismol to see if it will quiet her stomach.
Ok I will try that. She does sometimes eat the cats hair balls (gross I know) maybe its that
Great. Best wishes.
Thank you for the help
