My Diabetic Dog was at the Vet 2 weeks ago, with Pain after

My Diabetic Dog was at the Vet 2 weeks ago, with Pain after eating in the evening - it started him looking back at his bum and tail goes between his legs - It doesn't happen after his breakfast in the morning only in the evening where 30 minutes after eating he circles and pants in pain once we settle him he will calm down and then for about an hour after he is air/fly biting back at his bum area as if pain or if getting cramps.... Also over the last 2 weeks we have noticed he hasn't passed any wind! His Poo is perfect no blood and is pooing and peeing normal, Vet gave him antibiotics for UTI but when these symptoms didn't settle Vet put him on stronger antibiotics still it doesn't seem to have settled him - I find it strange after eating in the evening why he gets so agitated. Once everything settles down he lies down and goes off to sleep and doesn't flinch anymore or no more air/fly bites. Wondering can you help?

I have a male Yorkie, Charlie who just turned 3 years old.

Hi pearl,JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?Customer: I have a male Yorkie, Charlie who just turned 3 years old. Beginning of the year he had a narrow trachea issue which was given antibotics for. He's very mellow but my concern is his depression. I took him to the vet again and they said he has more of a mental issue and provided me with dog Prozac. I have decided to wait on the pills and just take longer walks or runs. He is very spoiled along with his sister Chloe. However Charlie worries me because he struggles to go on walks, I have to carry him half way, he wants to jump in any car thinking we are going somewhere (He loves car rides). anti other dogs with the exception of Chloe. Is afraid to go to the backyard (since 4th of july he's been afraid of the backyard). He only eats his food if I add a topping. He's currently on Merrick little plates- Grain free. was on Signature grain free before. Vet mention I should put him on puppy food. Wondering if the food is his problem. I give him a multi-vitamin with minerals. He gets excited when I come home for work for lunch and also after work, but soon he returns to the room (his safe zone). Today I brought him outdoors with me to sit and close the backdoor so he can use the bathroom. Something else we are having a issue with. He holds it even when we are home. Sorry for the long message, I feel hopeless. I even do the lavender oil vapor in the house for him. He just seems sad but I dont' know why? My husband does travel for work, but I'm not sure if they is it. My other Yorkie use to have separation anxiety as my husband traveled but she has gotten use to it and is a ball of joy. THis is the reason why I got Charlie to be her companion at home :(. His blood work doesn't show any signs. Should I get a second opionion and x-rays? Change his food? Add grains or rice?JA: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot? The Veterinarian's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. You can tell your Veterinarian that you want to work with someone else and they'll pass your question on to someone else.Customer: Charlie weights 8 lbs and is very thin, I can feel his ribs but doctor said his weight hasn't dropped so not much of a concern just to feed puppy food and give Prozac.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Prozac?Customer: I have not given Charlie the meds yet, I have been using alternative methods instead of being more active. But he quick wants to go back in the car :(
