She came home after three nights at the vets and was whimpering. She pooped three huge piles. I don't know how she held it. We have to leave her again at Christmas.
Should I see if the vet will give her something? Maybe a suppository?
They don't poop where they sleep. They will have to walk her out of the cage... you may have to pay extra for it. We have to pay extra for them to walk our dog.... but it's SO worth it!!

I don't know what kind of vet previous poster has, but our vet won't just leave a dog cooped up in a kennel without potty walks!! That's not even healthy. And, you shouldn't have to pay EXTRA for it. That's ridiculous! If I found out a vet treated animals this way, I'd turn them in for animal cruelty! I don't kennel my dog at the vet because we have a WONDERFUL kennel nearby that is reasonably priced, clean and takes the dogs out several times a day to play and go potty. Maybe research the kennels in your area. Visit them and look at their pet accommodations to see if they are up to your standards.

specialwingz - the indoor outdoor type kennel... part is indoors and part is out... it's like a big cage. But there is no dirt or grass so our dog won't go there like some dogs. So yes we pay extra to have our dog actually walked. It's very standard practice... we shopped around and it was the same everywhere around here.
