Customer Question

We took our 9 year old Basenji to the ER last night fearing bloat. The XRay showed the tummy normal, just full. BP was good also. The vet said to do short walks, meds as normal and small feedings. No improvement today. I do two very meals. He pees and has bowel movements going oitside. What can I do to help him?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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 situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

What meds is he on?

How much stool has he passed?

Has his distension reduced at all?
