Customer Question

My 4.5 year old Olde English bull dog has pooped in the house the last 2 days which he never does and he is typically calm. The last 2 to 3 days he's been very restless. He'll lay down and suddenly get up and wander. This is happening all night.

His inappropriate defecation and restlessness suggests urgency and gastrointestinal cramping respectively. A dietary change and dietary indiscretion - eating something new, inappropriate, spoiled, or perhaps a non-food item, are just two of the many causes of such behavior. I'm willing to "watchful wait" these dogs for up to 72 hours but if symptoms persisted longer, his vet should take a look at him. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
