Q. Shih Tzu has not had bowl movement in 2 days

A. We normally say 2 days is the cut off and should just be checked over to ensure no problems. it could just be constipation but could also be a blockage. Especially if there has been straining to pass or any other symptoms such as vomiting or lethargy.
