  • If the area is red sore and he has done scooting or licking the area his anal glands might need to be emptied that wouldn't usually cause his poop to be stuck unless its a pain thing. A call to the vet would be in order regardless.

  • Don't pull it out, if it is string or something that he ate, it could be wound around the intestines, and pulling it out will do damage in that case. Hopefully he is just constipated. You can give him up to a tablespoon of oil to help things along, if he is a small dog just a teaspoon will do. If it doesn't clear itself up soon, take him to the vet.
