My pregnant dogs stomach is really hard

My pregnant dogs stomach is really hard and uncomfortable. She hasn't been eating like usual and she seems uncomfortable so I made a vet appointment. My vet checked her out and she has some soft lumps (which I didn't mention). So now what should I do? I want to make sure she's ok but I don't know what to look for. If the vet thinks it's not serious could it be something else?

It's hard to say what this is... But I've had several cases of this where the dog has not been eating properly. This could have to do with stress, which can cause this condition (which causes weight loss). You can take them to the vet for further diagnosis.

I'm sorry, but I have to ask, do they ever give you any sort of diagnosis? Do they even suspect a diagnosis? I'm sorry to be negative, but I do know that this is not something that you just wake up one morning and have.

I've had a lot of these problems and this is what I've learned so far.

1. Your dog is in a lot of stress.

They don't eat. They are lethargic.

2. Do an IM injection.

It's good to check their blood work before and after and to get their blood pressure. It's not necessary for the diagnosis but it can help.

3. They may want to eat and they may not.

If they're going to eat, you may have to keep food out until they want to eat. If they won't eat, that's not so easy, but you have to try.

It's hard to tell what's going on unless they are eating normally, or something else is causing this.

They may eat, but eat small portions and leave out more later, or skip meals entirely. They may not eat at all.

4. Do you know what's going on?

It's hard to tell. They may just be bored or anxious, for example. You should always try to know what's going on.

5. Try to figure out what is causing the stress.

If it's an outside issue, you can try to resolve it. If they're getting into a fight, for example, you can step in and try to resolve that.

If you can't do that, you should go to a vet.

6. Make sure they have adequate food.

I've had this problem with dogs who just want to eat food that's lower quality than they need. They don't want to eat meat because it's too fatty. They will eat better quality food if they are eating less of it.

7. Make sure you are treating any other problems that are causing stress.

You can do this through your vet. It could be that they have an underlying disease. They may need an immunocore. They may have other things going on.

8. Talk to your vet about the stress.

They may have suggestions that will help. They may even tell you that they don't have a diagnosis, but that they don't think you should worry about this until they see how things are going, and they won't worry until they see it getting worse.

It's not an easy problem to deal with, and I wish I had an answer for you. I wish I could tell you that there was something you could do, but I really can't. I know there are things I've had to do, though.

1. If you're worried and they don't eat, you can try to force them to eat, but this is not recommended. I've tried to force my dogs to eat (even if they didn't want to) and it usually just made them more anxious. You have to know your dog.

2. If they don't eat, it could be because they're under a lot of stress.

3. If they're really not eating, that's not good, and you should take them to the vet. It's not something to try and self treat.

If you have some suggestions, try them. Ask your vet for suggestions. They may tell you they don't have a diagnosis, but they think they can figure something out.

Hi. My 2 dogs have been showing signs for a while. They are both very lethargic and don't want to eat, they just lay around all day and don't want to move. They also seem to be sleeping a lot more, and the one who I am most worried about seems to have an infected tooth, I can't see where it is, but it is really painful and he won't let me touch it or even open his mouth. I am taking them to the vet tomorrow and they want me to bring them back in 2 weeks. I just want to be sure they aren't getting sick, but it seems like they are. They always get really sick after that.

I'm really worried about them. I hope you can help.

Edited to add: I have a friend that thinks I should give my dogs a homeopathic medicine to help them. He said it would take about 10 days to work.

You can try homeopathic remedies, but they can be hard to give to your dogs and hard to predict what they will do. If you don't want to give them homeopathic remedies, I'm not sure what you can do. I've been through this before, so I know how it goes, and it's hard.

If you go through the vet, I'm sure they can help you. I hope you feel better soon, and I hope your dogs feel better too.

If it's been a long time, it's probably a good idea to take them for an exam and bloodwork, just in case.

If you haven't had any issues with your dog, I'd wait a while to bring her in. I've had the same experience and it seemed to work out fine in the end, so I'd wait a while.

If you have any more specific questions, feel free to ask. I can tell you that this kind of
