Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog. How long has this issue been going on for? Is your dog's energy level normal? Any vomiting? When did she last have a bowel movement and was it normal in appearance (sometimes we may see a dog straining and think they have constipation but straining can also occur if a dog has been having diarrhea earlier in the day, so I want to be sure that isn't the issue here.
