[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]
How long does it take to work? I had to leave Dreganna at the Vet for 8 days while we were on vacation. I left detailed instructions which they seemed to follow for the most part except for baths. They didn't give her a bath at all from what I can tell. I usually do baths every other day for her. She's only had one bowel movement in the week since we've been home and is drinking water (which she never does) from her baths. Her one bowel movement (it was in the bath) had a really hard urate which led me to believe that she didn't get any water at all in the 8 days that we were gone. I gave her 0.03 ml of olive oil 4 days ago and later that afternoon during her bath she had the bowel movement. Then we skipped a day. Two days ago I gave her an additional 0.03 ml of olive oil followed by a bath. She didn't go. Yesterday I gave her a bath but no oil. Still no bowel movement. Today, I gave her another 0.03 ml of olive oil and a bath and she still didn't go. She is moving fine. Her back legs are working properly. She feels a bit backed up though (on the left side not the right). I've been massaging her sides during the baths.
Any tips or ideas?
You can mix applesauce with the olive oil, that will help.
Also when you bath her make the water a little warmer than normal.
