Bloated stomach, panting and swollen anus. Bloat or anal gla

Customer Question

Dog anus is swollen, bloated belly and panting. No attempt to vomit. Passing gas.

I'm not sure if it's a big deal or not. She hasn't vomited nor has she tried. She passes gas and runs away from it as if it hurts. No noticeable bowel movements if any at all. Her anus is red and swollen. She had them externally expressed in the winter. She only eats Nutro brand dog food as well. Her stomach is tight but she is burping and farting as well. Is it bloat? Or is it constipation /anal sack?
