Guys,
I need your experience once more. As you know, Mia had her surgery on Thursday and she's doing remarkably well. She's even started to walk however; she still has not pooped... She's eating very little, pieces of boiled chicken and (hate to say it) pieces of ham and drinking plenty of water but NO POOP. She is going to the vet tomorrow so I am going to mention it to him but wondering on your experience.

Thanks,

Chris

That seems like a long time without a poop. I hope your vet can help. Let us know what he/she says.

give her a little canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix) mixed with plain, non-fat yogurt....maybe a teaspoon of each and let her lick a little off your fingers for a bit. that should do the trick.

I think the anesthesia can have that effect. Perri didn't go till two days after his dental I think, and I had to do the canned pumpkin to get him to go. Did the vet give her anything special to help when she saw her today?

Update: Still nothing! I left her at the vet for 4 hours while I went to work and when I returned, the vet tech told me that they have given her a suppository but nothing however she had poop stains around her opening but nothing in the cage. I'm thinking she did and the other vet tech cleaned it out before she went home. I'll find out more tomorrow. The vet tech told me that they might have to give her an enema tomorrow. Wow....

It seemed like forever for Lilly also (I think 4 days) and when she went she was in so much pain she was just shaking. I kept petting her and tell her it will get better.

The Vet should be able to help. It should happen soon.
