Debbie. My mini Schnauzer seems to be somewhat constipated…

Customer Question
Hello Dr Debbie. My...

Hello Dr Debbie. My mini Schnauzer seems to be somewhat constipated this morning. Also vomited late last night....and its the weekend so my vet is closed. Any info you have to help the constipation will be appreciated. Thanks, Cheryl

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

No that I am aware of. She is quite active and finds and crunches "weird" things outside...like worms. We add oats in her diet too.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Guinness is 10

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Guinness?

No. Other than this, she is healthy. Had full bloodwork last month - all normal. She is up to date with shots too

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Is he straining to pass stool?

How long since she last passed any?

Can she keep any water down?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
