• Dog hasn't pooped since yesterday morning, for the past couple of days she has been pooping small pebbles, not her usual. Still eating and acting normally. Should I be concerned?

    Hi Berenice,
    If your pet still has not defecated I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. True constipation is rare in dogs so it is concerning that there may be an underlying disease or condition causing the constipation. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of her symptoms and the treatment that she needs after they have examined her.
