Ask a dog vet and get answers to your dog health questions
Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I cannot make a diagnosis over the internet, but I can give you some advice regarding your dog. Have you noticed any vomiting or diarrhea? For the pain, you can give a baby aspirin (81 mg) every 12 hours as needed for pain. If you are noticing some vomiting or diarrhea, you can give some Pepto Bisomol (1/2 tsp every 12 hours). I would also feed a bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice to help with appetite as a bland diet. Let me know if you have any other questions!
If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
I see, I would see if he is interested in boiled chicken and white rice. It's a good diet for a dog that's constipated. You can add in 2 tsp of canned pumpkin for the constipation. You can also give him 1/4 tsp of Miralax as well to see if that helps. Sometimes if they are having back pain they will tense up their stomachs as well, so I would give some baby aspirin to help if that is the case. If he still does not want food and is very tense despite my advice, I would take him to the vet for an xray and possibly an enema if they feel it is necessary.
You're welcome, I hope that helps your dog.
