Butt (Anus) Problem ?

Today I took my dog out for a walk around the neighborhood and all was good until she stopped on the side of the road to do her business. She set there for a second not doing anything and then she started yelping and then it all came out. (sorry if the portrays a nasty image but its the best I can explain it.) After that she started back running around like normal. We got a little ways down the road and I noticed I could see her butt kinda protruding a little. It has never done this before. You ever seen those nasty looking monkeys that there butt holes stick strait out at the back? That's what it looked like. I wish I would have got some pictures. I took her back home and took a napkin to wipe it off and see if it was painful to the touch. She didn't act like it hurt at all and I ended up pushing it back into place. Its like it didn't retract? Has anyone seen this?

it's a prolapse. has it returned to normal? if not, get the dog to the vet.

Yes its back in place. But I did assist it some with a napkin. I didn't press hard and I was mainly trying to see if she was in pain but now its back in place and staying. Should I watch it on her next valve movement and see if it does it again or should I get her to a vet? She acted like she was constipated when it happed. Shes never yelped while using the bathroom and she tryed to bite at it during the process.

Thanks for the quick response.

it can happen when the dog's pushing too hard (happens with cats and occasionally with humans, too). i would definitely keep an eye out and give the emergency vet a call if it happens again.

i wonder: what is your dog eating, and how much water does she consume regularly? she may simply be constipated.

She drinks water all day long. I have her on Victor grain free ultra professional. I'm thinking it may have to much protein and may drop down to the regular victor red bag.

Just give her some cooked pumpkin to soften the stool - about 1/2 cup. Pumpkin both firms up runny poops and softens hard ones.

If it looks sore or comes out again, Vet time for sure. But I would add the pumpkin to soften so she can heal.

I would have her checked. Better to be safe than sorry.

assuming you're in the US, you can get it at any grocery store. get pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. and yes, it's in a can.

Victor looks to be a good food. Just make sure you are feeding the all life stages and not the maintinence formula. Maybe you could add a little water to her food for a bit, too.

If you can't find pumpkin, you can always buy and roast a few sweet potatoes. Just let them cool before feeding and remove the skins first. I've had Griff on 1/2 cup of that with his meals for the runs.

Tip from my vet:

Once you open the pumpkin, freeze what you don't immediately use in an ice cube tray and feed an ice cube per meal (after thawing in microwave). I measured a section in my ice tray and it is 2 TBSP (1/8 cup).

And I would have already been at the vet's with a prolapse.

It should be good to be Dog.
