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.
