My lab was rough housing with our grandson after supper last

Customer Question

My lab was rough housing with our grandson after supper last night. Later in the evening he tried to pass a stool twice and nothing happened. He was biting under his tail often during the night. Now he refuses to eat and is not himself. Can it be stomach bloat?

Biggest concern is that he refuses to eat, even a treat. Definitely not his usual beavior

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

Does he stomach look distended? Is it tense, tender, or painful if you press on it?

Any vomiting, retching, gagging, or drooling?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Any changes in his breathing?

Has he been dragging his bottom on the ground?

Any lumps, sores, redness or changes around the rectum?

Could he have eaten anything non-edible while playing?
