5 month old pitbull puppy in pain?
by michaela p.
Hi i have a 5 month old pitbull who is eating and drinking fine, and when she does poop it looks normal, but it seems like she won't poop out all of her poop when she goes and she won't poop unless i physically watch her go on purpose? then she is looking to go back in without finishing.
But i noticed 2-3 days ago that if i push the area right where her legs start she yelps and she won't curl up she will only lay straight and flat but i know she still has to finish pooping but she absolutely will not.
what's wrong with her?
It sounds as though your pup is constipated, and I'd recommend that you have your vet take a look at her.
As she's pooping some she's not totally 'blocked up', but she may need some help if she has some hard and dry stools being retained.
Don't try to fix this yourself manually, or you could hurt her. Your vet will be able to examine her and get it taken care of, so get her seen asap.
Best of luck, hope she's doing much better soon.
