when you go to the vet...have them do an ENEMA. That will clean him out.
Then start taking him on actual walks...exercise stimulates digestion and he needs to find his area's. An hr. standing and sniffing around a patch of grass the size of a bus is not exercise.
I used to live in a very big apt. building with many dogs and saw many a dog owner do just that...take the dog out to the grass and stand there idle w/dog extended on a flexi-leash circling the owner as they stood there waiting for it to poop.
I had a cat with chronic constipation. This had to be done numerous times (enema). He eventually lost his bowel motility b/c they just kept giving drugs and eventually had to have a $1500 surgery to remove his large intestine.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
