Rottie having a hard time pooping – ingested a diaper!

by wil

my rottie got into my grandbabies dirty diapers and is having a hard time pooping.

she is trying but very little comes out. thanks so much.

Hi Wil
If your Rottie actually ingested the diaper, or part of it, she could now have a blockage that is preventing her from pooping.

Diapers contain a material that swells up as it absorbs moisture, and if this happens inside your dog then she could be in serious trouble.

I can only recommend that you take her to your veterinarian for a check up, he/she will be able to tell if there’s a problem, or if the diaper/s should pass through without too much issue.

An internal blockage is a VERY serious condition, so if your dog is having difficulty, don’t ‘wait and see’, it’s always better to be safe than sorry so get her to your vet right away.

Best of luck, hope this all ends well.
