there are a few things that could be going. Constipation could be a problem. Dogs also can have anal gland problems that can be very painful. Try to monitor his eating and drinking and pay close attention to his bowel movements.
I would recommend a warm bath, plenty of fluids...add water to his food.
You can also try to give him some miralax which can help soften the stool. How much does he weigh?
If things are not improving by tomorrow and he seems really painful then I would recommend an exam to ensure that he doesn't have an and gland infection.

Please let me know if you have additional questions. I hope that helps. Again, provide me with his weight and I can give you a dose of miralax.
I hope that helps.

Ok. They could still be a problem. Sometimes you can see a sore by the anal area. Also, the miralax does work well if you want to try it. I just need his weight.

He could have 1/2 tsp twice daily. Of course decrease the amount if you feel like the stool is getting too loose
Keep me posted. Any more questions?
