Dr. Joey :

Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

Dr. Joey :

This is excellent that he no longer has loose stool. In general we do not worry about constipation unless a dog has gone 6 to 7 days without defectating. Two to three days is perfectly acceptable, as long as he is otherwise acting normal (good appetite, energetic with normal attitude, no vomiting). If he is not acting himself, then he needs to be seen by his vet today or tomorrow.

The not defecating at this point may be due to the fact he evacuated his system and now is resetting. So, as long as he is otherwise doing great, continue to monitor and he should produce stool in the next few days.
