When you took away food did you put her on a bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice?
Has there been any vomiting?
Thank you. Has she shown interest in food?
or is she only eating a little here and there?\
Beside the possible eating of a jacket or sweater does she eat non food items such as raw hides, bones, jerky treats etc?
thank you. Well it could be the sweater/jacket she ate or it could be that the greenie is causing the problem. Despite what the company claims these are not well digested when big pieces are chewed off and can cause an obstruction of the bowel
They can also pierce the intestines if a sharp piece is chewed off and swallowed
If there is an obstruction then that won't fix anything. We do this if there is a virus to give the intestines times to settle down. Please check her gum color, it should be a nice bubble gum pink, if they are pale or white seek vet help. Press and release a finger on the gums and count how many seconds it takes to go back to the color they was before you pressed on them
That is too long. It is advised that you get her to an emergency vet in your area
you are very welcome. After you have rated I would like to send you a free follow up to see how she is doing in about 7 days is that okay?
great. My thoughts are with you both
you as well
Roxy is good. I took her to a pet hospital. They took a stool sample. There was no presence of parasites. They gave me some medicine for her and she started pooping normal a day later.
Thank you for your concern.
