Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. I am sorry to hear your boy has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.
What medication is he on?
Are you still feeding the bland diet and if so what exactly are you feeding him?
Has he tried to pass stool at all?
Is he eating and keeping it down?
Thank you. Please give me a few minutes to type up your answer
Sometimes the bland diet especially the rice can cause some constipation, in some dogs the Metronidazole can do this as well. It is also not uncommon for them to not go as often when on a bland human food diet because the body is using the majority of the food leaving little to be expelled.
What you could do is try giving a stool softener such as Colase 1 adult dose. As long as he is eating and keeping it down and not straining to go then I would give him another 24 hours. If he does not pass stool by tomorrow then I would give your vet a call and see what step they would like for you to take next.
I hope this helps give you some direction and helps to ease your mind. Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue.

That may help. In that case I would skip the stool softener and lets see how he does over the next 24 hours. We really do not get to concerned unless a dog goes more then 5 days, is straining or is not eating or vomits when eating.
You are very welcome. Please give him a good pet from me.
