Customer Question

My dog just started whining and tucking his tail. We've tried to no avail to get him to go #2 but no luck. We initially thought he was holding it because of the foot of snow outside but we shoveled him a space and even took him for walks with no luck ūüė≥.

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a couple questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Do you know when the last time Toby defecated was?

Is his belly hard to the touch or soft?

Does he get bones, rawhides or people food?

Does he ever eat non food items like towels, socks, ect?

Does he scoot his butt on the ground at all?

If you lift his tail, how does he act?
