Hi all, Wynny came into season on bank holiday Monday so it's just gone two weeks.

On Thursday evening I let her in the garden and after about 30 seconds she came in screaming in pain, this lasted for about 2 minutes or so, yelling everytime she got up from her bed. She was running around with her tail between her legs and kept licking herself. When i looked there was actually a lump of poo stuck to her bottom. She was fine the rest of the evening just a bit subdued, which i put down to her season. When I took her for a walk the next morning she done 4 poos so I assumed she had a bad tummy the previous night and was maybe a bit constipated.

She was fine all day Friday and Saturday but the pain occurred again only for a couple of seconds on Saturday evening. Since this has happened she refuses to wee or poo in the garden. She comes out there with me so she's not afraid to go out there.

I called the vet yesterday and they seemed to think the pain was related to her tummy and that the strange behaviour is quite normal.

I'm hoping we don't end up with any psychological problems and she soon returns to her normal routine.

Has anybody experienced this with their poo that's in season.

Thanks

Oh poor Wynny :(

I have never heard of this before and although I am by no means an expert only having ever experienced one seaon. Looking online there appears to be one or two cases of constipation during a season but it does not seem to be common and I cannot find anything written about it. If it continues I would take her in to be looked at as this doesn't sound normal to me. Maybe someone with more experience of seasons might be able to offer a different view though. :)

Thanks Sarah she has been fine since the last episode, but if she yelps again I'll definitely taking her to the vet. Her poo is all normal and she seems to be going fine, but just not in the garden :(

Maybe she is a little bit more clingy as she is in season. I would give her lots of rewards and praise when she goes outside with you and try to make it a positive experience. Maybe play games outside and do fun things so that there are positive associations? Just a thought, but it might help. :) Do let me know how you get on. xx

Dexter occasionally gets a lump of poo stuck to his bottom and you wouldn't believe the fuss he makes, you would think he is dying! I had to drag/ carry him all the way home from the park once for just this reason! He is a real drama queen and certainly not in season!
