I have a 4 1/2 year old Chihuahua who has had no prior health problems. The only surgery he has had was a neutered about 2 years ago. In the past few months his abdomen has become swollen and hard, but he was otherwise healthy and active. In the past 2 days (starting 2/11-2/12) he has been yelping whenever his belly is touched and can't go up or down stairs at all. He is not throwing up and did go outside to use the bathroom but I didn't look to see what it looked like. Now He just wants to curl up and lay still. I am sleeping with him tonight and have the emergency clinic on speed dial and have already given them a heads up. But I'm hoping to make it to his normal vet, which is more affordable since I'm on disability. I have also left her a message in the hopes she'll return my call as soon as she opens. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas for pain management until morning?
