Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It is hard to know if your guy is constipated or that he has injured his back in some way. This can happen just by moving the wrong way and this can cause extreme pain. For now, give your guy aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs and at the same time, give him a dose of Laxatone, available at the pet store. This is used in cats as a laxative but is very effective in dogs also. Give a dose of this every 4-6 hrs. If your guy has not improved after 6-12 hrs, seek help from your veterinarian. This may be more serious than merely constipation.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
