Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Abuela has mystery pains. Does she seem to pass excessive gas? Does she have any vomiting or diarrhea? What kind of food do you feed her? How long has she been living with you since she came off the streets?

A dewormer is a great way to start for a dog that was previously living on the streets. Intestinal parasites are very common in feral dogs. You should see improvement in just a day or two.

If that doesn't work, the next thing I would try would be a "sensitive stomach" type food. These are very easily digestible and can also reduce gas.

You may also consider x-rays of her hips and back as these also could be sources of her pain.

Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Amanda
