|Maggie was the exact same way, this went on for a while. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. She was straining and groaning and whining and really pushing after she was finished her BM.. only a few drops of clear liquid would come out after all that. Then the diarrhea started, I fasted her, gave her bland diet, etc.. nothing helped. I had a stool sample taken, but nothing showed up. so she was just treated for the diarrhea. Everything was fine for a while, but then it started again with the straining and then the diarrhea eventually came back. The vet was convinced she had whipworms. Another stool sample was taken, but nothing showed up again. Apparently whips are very hard to detect, even in a stool sample because they don't lay eggs everyday. She was treated for the whips and she has been fine ever since.
Lola may not have diarrhea now, but if this is the same thing as Maggie then she will eventually have it. Maggie's diarrhea wasn't constant, she had regular good size solid BMs too. I'm just very suspicious because it sounds like what Maggie went through.
It may not hurt to talk to the vet and maybe drop off a stool sample.
