Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
How long has it been since he had a bowel movment?
Is he eating normally?
He might be constipated and need an enema. Usually constipated dogs will be not eating, and often they will vomit. Other reasons for a firm abdomen are fluid inside the abdomen, an enlarged internal organ such as the spleen or liver or bladder. Is he drinking and urinating normally?
I have not heard back from you; I hope you saw my responses! Can I help with anything else? How is he doing?
