My dog is recovering from pancreatitis and is feeling better

Customer Question

my dog is recovering from pancreatitis and is feeling better and eating again but hasn't had a bowel movement in two days. Can this wait until morning when the vet opens? He growls if you touch his belly.

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you.

When did Max start eating again and how long was he anorexic previous to that?

Is he making any efforts to try and pass stool?
