Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What did he over eat today (ie dry food, treats, etc)?

How many hours ago did he last urinate?

Any changes to his breathing?

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

If you press on his belly,does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Its been probably ten hours since he ate an last potties. He is a large dog he eats alot he didn't over eat or drink he just had a lot of both as normal but hasn't peed yet still an its 5am from when I posted my question on accident twice at little before an after 2 pm yesterday. He is a little bloated due to he won't pee he did on the floor on accident alittle but stopped. He knows he needs to potty an I do to to relieve his tummy but he's refusing. He is stubborn

Hi again,

Since we seem to be discussing him on two conversation threads, I will repost here. Though with that additional information, 10 hours isn't a point of worry for this situation. What I said before:

If he is comfortable and not straining to pass either urine or stool, then we likely don't have a serious issue here and you can certainly give him at least water now. Generally speaking, we don't worry as long as they are passing urine comfortably every 24 hours. They don't have to always go after eating,even if that is their usual routine.

In this case, we'd want to make sure we are taking him out frequently to give him the opportunity to urinate. We can gently press on his bladder/abdomen to encourage it but we need to give him time. Of course, if he strains and cannot pass any, we'd need him seen urgently by his vet to check for a blockage.

Otherwise, in regards ***** ***** there are some steps you can take to get him to pass some if it has been a while since his last stool. To do so, you can add canned pumpkin or all bran to his food. These high fiber foods help restore fecal regularity and can push the stool throuhg the gut. Otherwise, you can give him a small dose of a GI lubricant (ie cat hair ball treatment, lactulose, miralax, etc) to lubricate the gut and get him passing stool sooner.

Overall, if he is comfortable and didn't overeat, then this isn't likely a worrying situation. Therefore, if he is not straining, we'd just want to add the above to his food to get him passing stool and get him outside as much as possible to encourage him to urinate. But otherwise this isn't a worry if he is not straining or struggling to go.

Please take care,

Dr. B.

You are very welcome,

Hopefully he will, since there are no signs suggesting a reason why he cannot. Otherwise, that sounds like a fine plan.

Take care.
