Customer Question
Small Yorkie I am "babysitting"...
Small Yorkie I am "babysitting" for 3 more days has trouble evacuating feces; evidence of a hard roundish substance at anus -- fecal impaction? (lives with small children who leave stuff on floor) tumor? Accomplishes elimination only after repeated straining efforts. Any steps I can take to relieve her discomfort? Have been wiping area with damp toilet paper, for hygiene and because it seems to make her feel better

Unclear whether my response went through. Dog is between 2 and 3; does not appear to have any belly pain, etc. Can I opt for a telephone conversation? I hit that button but it never asked for my phone number, which is(###) ###-####

No response from Vet for some time. Requested phone chat did not happen. If I leave this website will my inquiry disappear? If I cannot get a status report I'll have to cancel my credit card authorization.
