Customer Question

My dog had sickness and diarrhoea after eating bones. I fed her rice and boiled chicken for two days
Now she has not been to the toilet for three dsys. I have given her some olive oil in her food. Also good walks to try and stimulste her bowels. No success. She is eating and drinking normally and is not straining at all. Is this normal?

Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

Since Ffion is over this digestive disturbance, it may be that she has developed an Ileus which when the intestines stop working. The best thing you can do is to continue to give the Olive oil or MIneral OIl at 1 teaspoon per 20 pounds of her weight every 4-6 hrs. Continue to walk her to stimulate her bowels. Ffion is not in any danger as long as she is active and eating ...this will resolve with time. There is a slight chance that Ffion may be deveoping an intestinal obstruction and if this happens, Ffion will become lethargic and anorexic....take your sweet girl straight to your vet for treatment.

Does that make sense to you?
