Hi Becky,

Maybe you could give her a teaspoon of canned, pure pumpkin. Pumpkin has a lot of fiber in it, and has always worked for me when my fluffs aren't regular.

I hope that she has better luck tomorrow.

we use pumpkin as well

you can also use food processed green beans as well as they are high in fiber

is there any reason why no stool? recent fasting, anesthesia, pain med?

well i would be a little concerned as mine eat in morning and at night and poop twice a day so if you are noticing something then I would trust it :) It is that women's intuition thing. The only time mine have not pooped is when taking pain meds and coming out of anesthesia for dental otherwise regular.

Try the pumpkin first. I use organic canned pumpkin from whole foods. I have found it also at cost plus world market the same kind

Rocky goes once a day, but sometimes he gets a little shy in our yard and hides behind a bush. So I don't always see, but I think he's skipped a day here and there once in a while. He only eats 1/4-1/2 a cup a day of dry kibble and sometimes I put a little of our chicken mixed in with it. He loves zucchinni with it too. I think I'll try some pumpkin too because once in a while I see him pushing a long time. It's good to know! I hope Bailey is ok. I don't think you are being paranoid, I think you are being a good mom.:aktion033:

Agree about trying the pumpkin ( the unflavored kind) . It usually works quite quickly so if no results then I'd contact the vet. Also... does she drink a good amount of water? Sometimes lack of water consumption is a cause for constipation.
Did you check around her rectum to see if anal glands are swollen. If they 'hurt' sometimes they cause the pooch to 'hold-back' a bit from pooping.
