Customer Question
I have a 10...

I have a 10 lb shih tzu who keeps putting his butt in the air, cant seem to get comfortable and his nose is dry and warm.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

Hes up to date on his shots and 1.5 years old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

He doesnt cry in pain or anything.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?

TJ

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about TJ?

Hes not neutered. Dont know if that makes a difference

Hi Again

The signs you describe could be indicative of abdominal discomfort or a spasm in the intestines.

I usually put them on an anti-spasmodic medication like Buscopan.
