Customer Question
My dog hasn't defecated...

My dog hasn't defecated in three days. She is drinking and urinating. Her temperature was 99.8. She is very active in the spring and summer but now it is very cold here and doesn't like to be outside much in this weather. She is a yorkie.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Emma

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

She has never had this problem before. She is about 6 years old.
