Hi there!
My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help you with your question about your dog.
I'm sorry that he seems to be having so much trouble. I have a few questions if you don't mind answering them.
Has he been able to produce poop when he squats, or is he straining to poop when he does?
When the person took him to the vet and he was diagnosed, what treatment options were offered?
Is he showing other signs like vomiting or trying to vomit, or a lack of willingness to eat or drink?
How long has this been going on?
