Question I was wondering if you could all help shed some light on (especially any vets on the forum). My brindle boy who I got 2 months ago is amazing in every single way… EXCEPT in the pooping department. He is soooo stubborn and refuses to go unless it is at the dog park (which isn't close by). He has gone 2-3 days in the past without pooping unless we took him to the park.
So we asked a breeder what should we do and they mentioned a trick was to moisten a match and insert it in the rectum so the sulfur stimulates his bowels - a trick they use frequently at dog shows before going into the ring is what I heard. I've tried that and it works pretty magically! However, sometimes he is stubborn and I'll have to use 2 matches or so. He sometimes goes by himself now but i'd say 4 days of the week he needs the match assistance to poop.
Does anyone know if this is safe for the dog? Can it lead to any problems? Any advice on how to make my dog poop??
Thanks again for your feedback everyone
