My dog is ding a lot, not eating very much but will eat some

Customer Question

My dog is hiding a lot, not eating very much but will eat some ham. Tail is tucked tightly and I haven't seen him drink so I gave him water with a syringe. I was out of town since Sunday night. Maybe constipated?

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog!

  • Has he had any vomiting?
  • If you press on his belly, does he react painfully at all?
  • Has he ever had problems with his anal glands before?
  • Is he painful if you press along his spine (start at neck and move to tail) or move his neck and legs?
