Customer: My puppy ate a roibos green tea bag on fri night. She vomited sat afternoon and had done plenty of poos before hand (about 7 which is a lot, slightly loose, I could see part of the tea bag in one of the stools). Sat nt she really struggled to eliminate, and today, Sunday, she has not even tried to have a bowel movement although it looks like there is some faeces stuck in her bottom (its now Sunday afternoon).
JA: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your puppy will be able to digest that. What is the puppy's name?
Customer: there was no string on the bag. Her name is*****: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Star?
Customer: Perhaps that we are unsure whether she ate some poo the same day from a cat or dog. She is yet to have her second vaccination, will be in ten days. She is 3 months old

She is still interested in food and has had two meals today. She eats a raw diet. Although today Sunday she is quite quiet and just looking meek and sleeping.
I don't want to pull out the poo in her bottom as I don't know whether or not she has got a haemorrhoid from straining on Saturday and I don't want to do her any problems. She is a cockapoo.

Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Star. If she is still eating, and not vomiting, that is a good sign. Sometimes a cause of diarrhea will empty out a dog, and there will not be any bowel movements for a little while. If she is not straining, that is a good sign.

I would remove the feces you see stuck to her bottom. Sometimes if there is some feces stuck on the anus, the next bowel movement can't pass.

Dog do not get hemorrhoids. A hemorrhoid is a out pouching of a vein in the colon of people; dogs do not have these veins. Sometime if there has been diarrhea or straining, part of the colon lining can poke out of the anus, but this is not a hemorrhoid.

I would try to remove the feces on her bottom, and then see if anything else is sticking out of her anus.

Please let me know if this is helpful and what other questions you have.

ok thank you Rebecca I will give it a go. best wishes Jenny
