Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello I am Dr. Pulter. Please give me a minute to type up a reply.
Can you answer a few questions for me?
Does Toby still have his testicles?
Has any of the veterinarians explained to you why this happens to him?

If your dog is intact then you might have our vet check his prostate gland. If it is enlarged it may make defecation painful and difficult bowel movements. Polyps can also lead to painful, difficult bowel movements as well. Often with these conditions a dog will try not to defecate and/or the polyps or prostate will interfere with the feces passing. Thus the fecal matter builds up until you see fairly large feces.
You can read about these conditions on the following pages.
Discuss these possibilities with your vet and see if perhaps surgery is a good option for your dog at this point.
