Customer Question

My dog had surgery 3 days ago for eating rubber ball which was lodged between stomach and small intestine in the intestine. She is happy to drink water but will not eat. It's been exactly 72 hours. I'm scared. She's not herself.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Any gagging, lip licking, retching, or drooling?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Any changes to her breathing?

What treatments is she on just now?
