Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. What does he do when you touch his stomach? Do you know if he is urinating normally? Any vomiting or diarrhea?
Ok thanks. I believe he may have urinary tract infection or blockage. If he is not having any g.i. signs that would be a common cause of abdominal pain on palpation. So, it is important that you lock him inside and monitor him. Make sure he is able to pass urine. If he squats to go, and not even a few drops come out, that is a medical emergency.
Because if the urine can not get out of the bladder it can back up into the kidneys and leak potassium which slows the heart and can lead to death.
So if he can not pass urine take him to the emergency clinic so they can unblock him.
If he is able to pass urine then take him into a regular vet tomorrow morning to be checked for a urinary tract infection.
That is not something you can treat at home unfortunately.
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
I can not make phone call right now
If another expert is available they will call.
Hello I am Dr RB and I agree with Dr. Gabby. In the event that he has a urinary blockage, this is medical emergency that will need immediate attention to avoid bladder rupture and uremia (e.g from toxins he cannot excrete in his urine being absorbed into his blood stream. You are not "wasting your time" in asking but we are all medical professionals who give the real advice and may not always be the most convenient answer, unfortunately.
