One more thing, just in case he has to have surgery, tell the vet to use an anesthetic that is NOT in the MDR-1 no or caution list. Just in case. MDR-1 dogs can have seizures and, well that's enough...precautionary.
When your dog was hunched last night, was he trying to poop? Walking funny, like he was trying to get something out and/or signs of trying to excrete? Wondering how the vet determined that without being there.
Did he rule out pancreas or gallbladder obstruction w/blood work? Did he consider it as a possibility? Is this able to be seen when your pup is in surgery?
Just thinking something you should be asking w/vet today
Sorry about all the questions
edit: Just saw the update while I was typing this! He Pooped! Perhaps he doesn't need surgery? how was the poop, solid?
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
