Customer Question

My dog is not eating but still drinking water fine. I have had two sets of X-rays that at first showed a blockage in the stomach. Then two days later, the other set of X-rays showed no blockage but elevated intestines and an angry gut. Today had ultrasound and no blockage at all showing up. My dog last ate on Saturday, and still not hungry. He is breathing hard. What is wrong with my doggie?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Did his vet check bloods? Anything abnormal on those?
What medications have been used specifically?
Does he have any vomiting, retching, gagging, lip licking, or grass eating?
Does he stain like he wants to pass feces or just doesn't have to go?
