Blockage?

Recommended Posts

Guest deedeesmom

So this morning, our girl Deedee, was not feeling her breakfast. In fact, she barely ate it at all.

She would eat a couple pieces out of our hands, but not eat all of her meal from her dish like she would normally do.

 

When I took her out later, when she was trying to poop, she was whinning a little but not too much and her poop wasn't fully solid but not diarreah either.

 

Later this evening, when my boyfriend came home, she still had not eaten her food. And when he took her outside for the bathroom, she still whined, and sometimes a little loud and had failry runny poop. There has yet to be any signs of blood in her poop (thank goodness!).

 

Otherwise she is acting pretty normal. She's not playing as much as usual, but will still follow us all aorund the house.

 

Is this something we should immediately call our vet about or wait and see if she can clear whatever may be bothering her?

 

One of my co-workers recommended adding plain rice to her food to help her stomach, is that a good idea?

 

Any advice is much appreciated!

At least she's pooping so she's not blocked.

I wouldn't start the rice yet. Perhaps fast for a day unless folks posting after me suggest otherwise.

Is she drinking water?

She has been drinking normally with out a problem, just the eating and whining when she poops is the problem. Which did start just today and I'm sure I'm being paranoid, but I'm new to being a dog mom.

Get an x-ray. Sometimes they can be blocked and still pass stool-typically soft to diarrhea can pass around a blockage. I would have her checked.

Anytime there's whining/pain along with eliminating it needs to be checked. It could be a blockage or ot could just be gas pains, but it's one thing you don't want to mess around with.

Yup, I agree with the Vet Tech. :)
