Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately if you have responded back to me within 10 minutes of my response. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.
How long has this been going on for?
Is he eating?
Any vomiting or diarrhea?
Any difficulty walking?
If you press into his abdomen from both sides or press along his spine while supporting his abdomen with one hand, does he seem painful or uncomfortable?
What color are his gums?
