Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear this has been going on with Kilo and understand you must be very concerned.
Does his abdomen seem bloated or tense?
Has he had any vomiting or diarrhoea?
Finally, are his gums pink and wet?
Unfortunately I am quite concerned from your description as there is a chance he may have a dangerous condition called Bloat.
Larger dogs tend to be affected and signs can include retching, a distended abdomen and restlessness. Dogs can go downhill quickly and this condition can be fatal.
Other possibilities would include a gastroenteritis, pancreatitis or gut obstruction.
Given what you have said, I would advise bringing him to an emergency vet now for assessment.
If you need the details for your closest one, please send on your postcode.
I am personally unable to make calls but can continue talking via typing if that is ok.
I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean?
You have requested a phone call and I have declined as I am unable to make calls.
I have sent my written response via text. It is written above and also in your email inbox.
Your call request is now live so another vet can call you. Or, if you are happy with the written advice, it can be refunded.
Okay sure, not a problem.
This window will stay open so please do feel free to keep me updated with things. You can continue to ask questions.
Hopefully your dog is back to normal very shortly.
