Question: Ok, this is kind of a weird question, but my dog has only been pooping about once a day for the past two days. And when she does poop is kind of big with a little speck of blood on it. Is she just constipated or it is something serious?

She is probably just constipated. This can happen if they have had a lot of fiber in their diet and not enough water among other reasons but these are most common. I have the same problem with my dog from time to time. Usually a little bit of milk gets things softened up and going. Hope this helps.

What part of being constipated, can barely walk, can't jump etc., makes your mother think the dog is doing well? I'll bet if she was constipated and could barely walk she would take herself to a doctor. It's against the law to withold vet treatment from a sick dog and she can be charged. The fine will cost her a lot more than a vet visit and as a bonus she'll have a conviction for animal cruelty recorded against her name. If she thinks this is a load of codswallop tell her to check the law out herself. I feel so sorry for kids who have parents who refuse to pay for a vet visit for their sick dogs. These poor kids are beside themselves with worry about their animals and they can't do a thing about it. When a parent agrees to own an animal they are obligated to care for it properly. Let your mother see you are serious about getting this dog to a vet. Call a low cost shelter or human society and explain the situation. They may be able to suggest something for you. Let your mother hear you making the calls. It might shame her into doing the right thing. Is there anyone else in your family you can ask for help? An auntie or an other adult family member?

Most dogs will be constipated at some time or another in their lives, and it's usually nothing to worry about. Simply put, constipation is an inability to empty the bowels by normal means. If your dog seems to be straining yet cannot pass a stool, or if the stool is exceptionally hard, he's probably constipated. Usually the body can work the problem out by itself, but if the constipation lasts more than a few days, you should consult your veterinarian.

Pumpkin - canned is the best thing for constipation without giving a runny stomach - a few spoons of this mixed in with their usual food is fine. Maybe try looking at a different diet....

Is she drinking enough water? Whenever the body starts to get depleted of fluids, it starts trying to conserve it and will, thus, send less of it into the intestines to mix with the feces and make it soft. If she isnt drinking much, try giving her low-sodium broth (chicken or beef). If she'll drink that, it will be sufficient enough water for now. Also, as someone already suggested, give her a couple tablespoons of mineral oil by mouth (good luck!) and, if you have an eye dropper, GENTLY give her an eye dropper full of mineral oil up her rear end. The "skin tenting test", where you pinch the skin on her shoulders to see if it springs back, is NOT an accurate (or even near-accurate) way to test for dehydration. Only blood work can verify that. By the time the skin no longer springs back, the dog is severely dehydrated. As for the pumpkin, keep trying it but if it isnt working, go to plan B. Try the mineral oil. Do not give her any bowel stimulants. Since she's already trying to pass bricks, stimulating her bowels to do it faster will only make it worse. Stool softeners only!!
