Customer Question

My bichon has not pooped for two days after the groomer who shaved all hair around anus he scoots but I can't find the anus.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Sammy
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Sammy?
Customer: He is always regular and he is eating and drinking but now is listless but is more lively when I take him out. His anus feels different now there is no hair. Different than other vets. I am worried he won't poop

1) Please post a picture of his anus at this present time.
2) Is he eating and drinking well?
3) Still scooting?
4) Do you know if the groomer expressed his anal glands?
