RiserGSD I think we all do to some extent lol.

katieliz panic over-drive, yea, that's me, lolol...

RiserGSD Yep, he's already seen the vet and was all clear. The vet was telling me that he's just being "funny about his business" and said he's A-okay, just that it's gas due to new food without a transition period. Stool was clear, no blood, or mucous, or worms/parasites.

I'm still keeping a close eye on him because he was eating and throwing up grass. He's happy now and less anxious and started eating again.

Just an insecure pooper, so I will start with training in different enclosed areas with the 15ft lead. He's such as mess lol.

I swear, I was this . Close to giving him an enema because I thought he could've been constipated because he refused to poop for 24-30 hours. I worked at a vets office for several years so I have experienced some very odd situations with pets! However, because everything else was ruled out I was starting to get nervous! I tend to go into panic over-drive when it's my own pets lol.

pineconeforestGSD last year our dog was deathly ill.i spoke to the vet over the phone and he said give her an enima ASAP. it was our 1st canine enima ,it was scary and we were nervous-but it saved our dogs life.i now keep an enima bottle for dogs in my canine 1st aid kit.

katieliz well yay!!! appears i was over-reacting. i'm a better safe than sorry kinda girl, lolol...

katieliz i dunno, i'd be worried. stress can bring on both bloat and torsion, and the symptoms aren't always the same. the eating grass and vomiting worries me too. i truly think a vet visit is in order.

ps...please re-think the "stubborn" issue, dogs do not have that human emotion. dogs operate primarily upon instinct. no stubborn or getting even or vindictive in the dog brain.

again, i'd be real concerned. hope i'm overreacting and that it's just an upset tummy from stress.

I was hesitant to ask you if you took your pup to the vet before or after he stopped eating to clear his stool samples...

It's difficult providing medical advice over a forum.

We have tried several long walks, that doesn't seem to help. I finally got him to squat and try to poop but nothing but gas came out. I have a 15ft training lead that I will try if it's just because he's paranoid and insecure. We're out back and waiting to see what he does ATM.
