    Here's hoping its the anal glands. What a nightmare to have a 14 week old with SM (that I gave as a gift, no less).

    Thanks Cindy and Wesley!

    Cindy....Does the pumpkin make their poop firmer?

    Another option for feeding fibre is a spoonful of bran, sprinkled on food. It needs to be rough bran, used for horses or from a health store, rather than the processed cereal type. This also has the advantage of helping with weight control, as it makes the dog feel full, so he/she doesn't want so much food.

    Ok, so where in the world do I buy pumpkin? Is it canned in a food aisle or something? I think I'd rather try that.

    Oh yeah. Canned pumpkin is generally in the baking isle in our store, near the pie fillings. Just be sure to get the pure pumpkin without the added spices.

    Lindsay,
    I have seen India do that when she was younger. Things she has yelped and looked toward her hindquarters about are: anal glands, bladder infection, knee injury

    I hope it is something easily fixed for you and Josh!

    Sorry to hear about Tilly! Indy went through something that sounds like this and I know it's frightening.

    Indy never screamed or yelped loudly, but when he was a younger pup (can't remember when but it seems like it was close to Tilly's age) he would often quickly sort of snap back at his hips and give little short yelps. He did it when he was walking, but I noticed it most often when he stood on his back legs. For example if he was on the floor with his front legs on the bed, he might suddenly whip around and do the little yelp and snap at the hips.

    We mentioned this on a couple of visits to the vet. They examined him and found nothing wrong and did not seem too concerned by it. Our vets love Indy to bits and have been very good so I trusted them. He's a year old this week and I only see him do it on rare occasions.

    I haven't read others responses yet so I'm hoping they don't have terrible news to the contrary, but in our experience things were ok..... please do get tilly checked out though to be on the safe side.
