My 3 year old Springer is hopefully about 3 weeks pregnant. I noticed yesterday morning that she was not going to the loo and hadnt been since around 8pm the nite before. Left her a couple more hours and then worried i phoned the vet. They said she might have an infection, leave her abit more and see what happens. It got to about 4pm yesterday and she still hadnt been. We was about to take her to the vets when i noticed she was stepping on the area the dogs do their business and then backing off as if she was scared, so i took her for a run off the lead out the front and she peed for about 5 minutes and her pooh was the size of a mountain. I phoned the vet back and explained and they said theres no need to see her as it sounds like she was just scared. But i cant understand why. Nothing about the garden has changed, no new things added. Where they go is where they have always been going. Any ideas as to why she would now be scared to go there??
