Why does my dog cry when she poops?

This is really strange, but my dog cries when she poops and I just can't figure out why. Is this normal? Could she be in pain? How do I check?

Call your vet.

There could be any number of reasons and some of them quite serious (intestinal blockage from swallowing a toy, etc). Sitters who aren't seeing your dog are in no position to assess this. Crying is never a 'good' thing. Call your vet.

Hi Lizzy,

Does your dog avoiding pooping and seem to be in pain when it happens? Or is she often vocal and might just be making noises to herself? I would get it checked out by a vet if she seems uncomfortable. There are any number of things that could be causing her discomfort, so I would err on the side of caution!
