Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Is he lethargic?
2- How often is he vomiting?
3- How long since he ate the shorts?
Friend, he is showing all of the symptoms consistent with an obstruction. It is best you do not wait and have him checked tonight by ER vet. If he has an obstruction the longer he goes untreated the more invasive the procedure to remove the shorts and worst prognosis, for this reason it is best to not wait. In the meantime remove the food and water, follow up with ER veterinarian.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
