I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Bella not pooping for 4 days. Is she straining, trying to defecate at all?

Any vomiting?

The olive oil is not really a stool softener or laxative. I might try adding some canned unsweetened pumpkin to her food, and/or putting 1/4th teaspoon Mira Lax (available over the counter) on her food twice daily.
