Okay, strange description, but lately my 9 year old 60 lb. dog has started pooping, in 3 different spots, rather soft stools, then try, unsuccessfuly, to go again, about 3 times. Sometimes his "thingie" comes out a bit. He drinks a lot of water, eats well and has lots of energy, so I don't see any other "off symptoms". Any ideas out there?
Do you give your dog rawhides? I've heard terrible stories abou them getting blocked in the intensine. Sounds like there could be an obstruction. I know there are home remadies on here for constipation, do a search and see what you find. However I wouldn't let this go too long before seeing the vet. How does his stomach feel to the touch, bloated/hard? Worth at least a call to the vet for advice!
