Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long have you been seeing these signs?

Is he straining like he needs to pass urine?

Any pain when you lift his tail?

Any sores or lumps around the rectum?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Could he have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
