Hello

My dog hasn't had a bowel movement in almost 2 days. When he does try to go only clear liquid comes out. He is eating fine and has a lot of energy. Are these symptoms of constipation? He has had a lot of stress the past few days flying on airplane, visit to vet's, etc.

Any info would help...

thanks!

If you don't see results soon, you may have to resort to a fleet enema--but only if your dog is showing distress. Otherwise, the addition of pumpkin to his daily diet can give added fiber, which should help the situation. I'd go with the pumpkin first, if he's still feeling good.

I think a visit to your vet would be appropriate if he hasn't had a normal bowel movement by now. What you describe doesn't sound like constipation to me but then I'm not a vet. In constipation there is usually firm hard stool.

The symtoms you describe could be caused by various things such as diarrhea or even a partial bowel obstruction but only your vet will be able to accurately diagnose and recommend treatment.

Keep us posted. Hope everything comes out ok.
