Customer Question

I have a dog that was fine and just about 30 minutes ago was yelping in pain. She seems to be ok till she walking and looks at her back end I am not sure what is causing her to yelp when she walks. She eats and drinks fine and other than that she is fine. I am not sure if she is constipated or what her issue is. I wanted to see if anything I can do or do I need to call her vet asap.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Is she holding her tail down?

Can you lift it for her? Any sores/lumps/etc. around her rectum?

When did she last pass stool? Any straining?

Any discomfort if you press on her belly or her back/hips?

Any chance of a fall or trauma?
