Customer Question

Hi my puppy is 8 weeks old. Her belly is very distended and seems to be in a great deal of pain. She is constipated and has a protrusion from her anus. It has occurred suddenly. I am unsure how to handle the situation?

Based on your description, I'm worried that Zoey could have an obstruction, large number of intestinal parasites, or an intussesception (telescoping of a bit of intestine inside another adjacent region).

I highly recommend having her seen by a local vet immediately. Any of these conditions could potentially be fatal. I would start with a physical exam and x-ray. Hopefully these will be enough to give us a diagnosis so we can begin a treatment plan for her.
