I need to know what to do about a dog having constipation. I have an 11 yo shiz zu *sp* that hasn't had a bowel movement since yesterday morning. She ate some 2% milk that had iced and someone had dumped at the campsite on Sunday. I know that's what it was because I asked the people that were in that spot, and I stopped her right away knowing that milk can constipate both dogs and cats. This is the only thing that she's had other than her dog food. She ate a little bit yesterday, but was just laying around yesterday evening...instead of acting her playful puppy self. When I went to pick her up off of the chair last night to take her out to potty, she yipped. My DH can't touch her at all without her yipping. I'm worried about her, but he won't let me take her to the vet yet.... His response to my telling him that she needs to go was, "Wait til at least Friday. Maybe she'll start feeling better once she poops. Ask some of those people on that forum that you're on." My vet fund is getting ready to plummet drastically (or be totally drained) because of a couple of tumors that Rosie has to have taken out. I have to ensure that I'm going to have enough to cover that surgery and the labs when he sends them out to be tested.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!! I'm very worried about my little Jasmine.
