It sounds to me as if your dog is constipated.

To treat constipation in a dog, you first of all need to establish the underlying cause of the constipation. An accurate diagnosis will make it a lot easier to prescribe an effective method of treatment.

Many factors can cause constipation in dogs, such as:

  • Absence or lack of fiber in diet.
  • Gastro-intestinal obstruction.
  • Ingestion of foreign material.
  • Prostate enlargement in male dogs.
  • Hernia in the perineum.
  • Some bacterial infections.
I would advise you to take your dog to a veterinary practice, where they can make a more detailed evaluation of your pet's constipation, and should be able to treat the problem fairly easily.
