Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I can help you with your question today. How long have you had Tank?
And how long has he been whining and uncomfortable when he is defecating?
OK, was he able to pass any stool this morning?
Is he still interested in eating and playing?
OK, this is an emergency. He should be evaluated by a local vet right away. I would start with a physical exam and x-ray of his abdomen. I'm worried about the possibility of an intussusception or obstructed bowel. These are both life threatening and should be dealt with immediately.
