View Full Version : Puppy poops? is this normal???

13th February 2012, 12:34 PM
Hi all, have had my puppy for 2 weeks now and she is acting a little strange when she has a poop. She goes out to garden without problem and has her poo but then sits in the pooping position for ages after and looks as though she is still trying to get more out, I can see her little tail flicking as though she is trying but nothing more comes out. Then when she eventually stops which is usually after about 5 mins (which to me seems a long time for her to be sat there trying with nothing coming out) we sometimes get the bottom scraping along the floor and sometimes don't.

I've mentioned it to the vet who checked her glands and these were fine and she is fully wormed up to date so I'm at a loss and wondered if anyone else has experienced this and if its something or nothing to worry about?

Thanks all xxx

She sounds possibly a little constipated? Are the stools really hard?

No, they seem normal, not soft n slushy but not hard and lumpy either, just look like regular poops lol

Um, heh, could she have a bit of eaten hair (or some other offender) tickling her rump? I know grass has been an issue for a few dogs...(and it always seems it's Mom's job to help them with that, lol).
