I have a yellow lab, she is 12 years old. Lately her stomach has become severly bloated, it looks as if she is having puppies. This has been like this for nearly 3 days. She still eats but doesn't poop, if she does it is barely anything. She has also started vomitting. We are taking her to the vet tomorrow. I was just curious if anyone knew what it may be. If so, please respond ASAP. Thanks so much!
Aw-G :(

Your dog could have anything from an intestinal blockage by some object, to cancer. Whatever it is, it's serious!

I'm glad you're taking her to the vet, but for future reference, 3 days is way too long to wait to take a dog in this condition to the vet. They should go at the very first sign of any bloating, especially in an old, large breed dog.

Let us know!
