Well, I think Cooper is constipated but more so I am afraid he may have eaten something in my parents house since we are been here. They don't have any inside dogs so the house isn't exactly "baby proof". I walked around when we got here and tried to find stuff he might be interested in eating but there is a possibility that I missed something and he ate it. I can hear his stomach making digestion noises. Last night he almost got eaten by a mountain lion and I opted to wait until morning to take him out again. His stomach was making said digestion noises last night as well and so I was sure to find presents on the bedroom floor. To my surprise not so much. I took him outside he tried to go and all that came out was a white slime. After trying for a few minutes he gave up. He hasn't eaten much of his actual food and I can't really tell if he is drinking as much water as usual. Does this sound like it could be something worse than constipation?

Yes. I have never seen white slime come out when a dog is constipated, just nothing. You can try to give him some pumpkin (2-3 TBSP's or so) and see what happens, but then again if it's something more serious that could just be wasting time. I don't know dogs are typically good about puking stuff up as my puppy ate a sprinkler head and barked it up 4-5 hours later. I don't know if it were me I would call an emergency vet and talk to a tech there and see what they say to do.

Let us nkow and good luck!

We ended up taking Cooper in today but he the vet was too busy to see him. He ended up starting to go to the bathroom late this evening.

Oh good, well not that the vet was too busy but that he started to go on his own!

I kept thinking what if he had been hit by the car and their was only one vet in the whole valley open. He would have died. That really worries me. I hope everyone's furbabies are okay.
