My lab can't P O O P - ate sticks or something

6 posts in this topic

I was up at the cabin this weekend and I believe my 2 year old black lab ate some sticks or chunks of wood. Since Sunday evening he has not been able to P O O P. Every few hours he will run around squatting and will not P O O P.

I am guessing that he ate some sticks or wood because he always chews up sticks at home.

Does anyone have any advice? How long should I wait before taking him to the vet?

Thanks!

Had the very same problem with a cocker years ago. She had voracious appetite. Swallowed a chunk of a corn cob about 2" She could not pass it nor would it break down. Ended up having surgery remove the blockage. The surgery was five times more than I paid for the dog.

If you suspect that there may be some blockage I'd get him in immediately.

I would contact your vet ASAP and discuss this with them.

What others said...if it's blocked it will kill the dog quick. Get a vet to take a look.

I went home on my lunch break and found 2 runny piles on the ground. I didn't find any sticks or anything it. Afterwards I called the vet and they said that sticks typically break up pretty easy. They also asked me if he has been vommitting and I said no. They suggested I take him in tomorrow if he continues straining trying to go to the bathroom. I will keep an eye on him after work today to see if the problem persists.

Thanks for everyones help...I appreciate it.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
