Thank you for your information, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

I have a couple of questions before I can best help you.

When she is trying to produce stool is anything at all coming out? If some stool is coming out is it litle drips of stool or hard dry nuggets?

Thank you for the information. If she is still eating then what you should do is give her 1 teaspoon of miralax (human over the counter) mixed into her food. In 1-2 days or less she should her having normal stools. If the miralax gives her diarrhea then either decrease the miralax or stop it altogether. If she is currently vomiting and not eating then there is no over the counter solution and she needs to see her vet first thing in the morning. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions. Dr. Dan
