Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, this is Dr. Gabby.
What is your dog's age and weight please?
When you say he was sick for a day what were his symptoms?
Is he trying to poop and nothing is coming out?
Ok I am not too worried if he goes a day or two without having a bowel movement as long as he is eating, drinking, and otherwise normal.
If he keeps straining to go, or blood comes out, or he stops eating then he should see a vet.
I would try giving him some fiber to help bulk things up and move then through. If he is 50 pounds you can do a tablespoon of Benefiber or two tablespoons of canned real pumpkin.
I can not do a live phone call right now. I will opt out so another vet can call. ; )
My name is***** I wanted to be sure you can no further questions about your dog after your conversation with Dr. Gabby.
