Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
The most common cause for this is a traumatic injury causing bruising that is so painful that your guy does not want to eat. For now, force feed him some liquified canned dog food and then give him aspiirn at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs. This will ease this discomfort and if this is minor, then this treatment could be curative. If there is no improvement, your vet will have to xray to know exactly what is causing this so the correct treatment can be given to your sweet little guy.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
