Rescued a female puppy mill breeding dog. Not eating days,

Customer Question

Rescued a female puppy mill breeding dog. Not eating for 3 days, drinks some, not urinating, has what looks like necrosis along her c-section scar and in other places on her belly. Belly is firm and distended, low energy, no panting, no licking. Cut nails and now she'll walk a few steps and stop and lay down. Tolerates and gently seeks affection.
I'm taking her to urgent care in the morning unless you think she's in pain.
Do you think she's having pain? Is she dying?

It appears you are not currently online and available to discuss your question. I'm sorry I missed the opportunity to have a live conversation with you. I will opt out so your question will be open to other experts when you return online. I do hope you find the information you are looking for and get Wendy the medical care she appears to urgently need right away.

Thank you.
