Question Need Possible Informative Info Please!! Maybe your dog Experienced this??

Hi All,

I have a 12 year old Chihuahua, she had some problems a few weeks ago with constipation, so I took her to the vet and they did blood work, and a full exam, and expressed her anal glands, her anal glands were full. her blood work came back all good, and everything was fine...the vet had me put her on Royal Canin Gastrointesinal Fiber Response Diet dog food. to help with the constipation. She is also on Probiotics. For a few days she had some watery blood on her anus before she would poop, but the vet said that could have been due to her straining to much to try to poop, and also do to a irritated anal gland where they were expressed, that all finally cleared up. She had been going to the bathroom just fine but I have noticed she will go to the bathroom just fine a few times, then like last night and today acts like she is having a hard time going.

She also has episodes where she will have I guess fecal incontinence she will be asleep, or laying and lose small pieces of poo, the vet said when dogs get older like she is they loose sensation in their rectum, and that can sometimes happen. I dont know if the problem with her having a harder time sometimes being able to go stems from this or not...

Has anyone experienced this with their dog? The vet hasn't given me any input other than what I have told you in this post. Any information anyone can give me, if anyone else has experience with anything like this with their dog, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

I'd get a second opinion. I'd want to know the cause of the problem and if possible a way correct what is happening. From what I've read unless there's some type of nerve damage involved the problem shouldn't be that she's lost sensation in her rectum. From what I know dogs that lack sensation in their rectum will leak feces all over the place, not just when they are sleeping.

Out of the articles I've read, this seems to best apply to what's happening with your girl Fecal Incontinence in dogs |

I agree with Rain. I've experienced this with a senior dog who had back issues. She lost sensation in her rear, which resulted in a loss of sphincter control.
