  • Depends on how long your dog has been without a bm. If it's only been a day or two, you can give 1 tablespoon of pure pureed pumpkin (NOT the pie filling). Any longer than that, definitely take them to the vet to rule out obstruction.

  • Take him / her to the vet. Sometimes they can eat things that cause and obstruction in their intetines and it can be deadly. They will need to take an x-ray most likely.

  • Especially if the dog is vomiting or not eating, there may be a blockage. See a vet soon because there's a chance the intestines could rupture, depending on what is in there, and the dog probably won't survive a rupture.
