Customer Question

Soon to be 1 year old, border collie/fox terrier mix. Just walked him and he tried unsuccessfully to poop twice. He was in doggie daycare for the night Saturday. No changes in food.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No, will look now.
JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the Border collie's name?
Customer: feet look good
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Border collie?
Customer: He "went"twice" since last night. One was very soft, the other was log-like. Not sure which was first.

Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. You said he did go twice was that today? But when you took him for a walk he seemed to have to go but could not?

Is he eating and drinking okay?

has there been any vomiting?

Does he eat non food items such as toys, bones, rawhides, greenies etc?

At the Daycare is there any outside time and if so what is your weather like?
