Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Has she had any appetite loss, gagging, or nausea?

Does she seem sore in her back end? Any where else (ie belly, legs, etc)?

Is Tater holding her tail down?

Any discomfort or changes (ie sores, lumps, redness, etc) around her rectum?

Any straining to pass stool?

We have run her to our vets. She was getting worse. We felt we shouldn't wait. Thank you

No worries, my dear.

I will send your question back to customer service.

Best wishes,

Dr. B.
