My Black Lab had a bowel resection last fall after ingesting a rock. She is currently exhibiting many of the same symptoms re: refuses to eat, vomiting, etc. She does not have bloody diarrhea and is taking water at this time, unlike last episode. Could it be another obstruction? Will she be more prone to obstructions after her last surgery? Would a laxative be helpful at this time? Thanks for your reply.
Your pet should be seen by a vet. Animals who eat foreign substances tend to repeat the offence again. vetcare
