My 6 day old puppy does not seem to have an open anus and cant poop
(port elizabeth, south africa)
My 6 day old puppy does not seem to have an open anus and can't poop.
I've tried to rub the tummy like the mom would.
The anus looks like it's shut closed...
If the anus is deformed and not opening properly then this puppy needs urgent veterinary help because he/she will die without it.
It's possible that your pup is constipated and that's why he isn't pooping and there's actually not a real problem with his anus. However, again only a veterinarian can really tell for sure.
Either way, he needs to be seen by a vet immediately as he needs help, so please get him examined asap.
I wish you the best of luck and hope he is doing much better soon.
