Customer Question
My corgi has expressed...

My corgi has expressed serious pain 3 mornings after eating and after com8ng indoors after eliminating. I took him to the vet...has slightly elevated lab results for liver and pancreas, he is now taking famotidine 2x day, and X-ray showed no foreign object. Yet this morn8ng, same symptoms. I did notice that pain commenced when he defecated and continued for about 15 min after. When I placed my hands firmly but gently on his abdomen, he calmed down a bit, and seemed to have some relief. Now he is sleeping stretched out and appears comfortable except for that morning 15 min intense signs of pain

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Giddy, 7 yrs

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Giddy?

I'm sorry to hear that Giddy isn't feeling well. The symptoms you are describing may be from abdominal pain or back pain. Corgi's (with their long stature) can be prone to back injuries.

Did your veterinarian prescribe anything for pain, or just the Famotidine?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The famotidine and an anti vomiting med, a GI low fat prescription diet meal for 5 days.
