Q. My dog isnt eating his biscuits and is shaking a little. He wants to cuddle a lot. I think somethings wrong with his stomach. Constipated often.. :(
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Sounds like your dog has some gastrointestinal distress going on. Frequent constipation is kind of an unusual thing to see in dogs, but certainly if that's going on it can cause discomfort and nausea. Adding fiber to his diet may help in the long run, however it's probably not going to help right now, since he's not eating. I would recommend taking him in to see your vet ASAP, as these are kind of general signs you're describing and many things could be going on. He needs a good exam by your vet and possibly some lab work and/or x-rays to help figure out what's going on and how to help him. If he's got a blockage from chronic constipation your vet can give him an enema for relief.
