Vet : Hi there, vet Andrew here. What breed is Sky?
Vet : Is she up to date with her worming?
Yes monthly advocate
Vet : Good. What diets have you tried?
Tried wet food n dry even tried giving puree carrots but makes no difference
Vet : OK. I see two possibilites here:1. She has a rectal stricture - this is a sort of scar in the bowel which narrows it and makes defaecation painful.2. As she is still growing and her gut is maturing she's having simple problems with constipation that will pass as she matures.
Vet : My plan of action here would be: Keep her on wet food, preferably of good quality as these are less bulky to pass. Add to this a paraffin-based faecal softener which you can get from your vet's in a small tube.
Her stools are soft thou
Vet : If after two weeks she still has problems, get her examined by your vet, preferably under light sedation, for a stricture. These can be gently eased out, or may require surgery. This is unlikely to happen, so don't worry too much.
Shall I still give puree carrots
Vet : In small amounts, yes. They can help with constipation, but I do recommend you try the paraffin.
Ok thankyou wot price is the parafin
Vet : Off the top of my head I think it's just £3-4 or so. Nothing drastic.
Vet : So, paraffin for two weeks, then to the vet if no joy. In the meantime, if you see blood or mucus in her stool, or she gets worse and you are worried, take her straight to your vet. Can I help you with anything else?
