The past week has been kinda rough for me personally . I had my girl euthanized, then I had an argument with my father, and then I find out that my sister's dog was hit by a car, then My girl Heidi(another Shepherd) got sick and I took her to the vet this morning. She was having diahrrea and was barely eating, and I knew something was wrong. The vet did some bloodwork and that turned up normal. I told the techs at the animal hospital that she was having difficulty in trying to defecate, like it was painful for her, and they did take some xrays. Turns out that she did have some fecal matter around her colon, and when she went to the batheroom after that, the colon looked ok. She could not wag her tail like she usually does, and the dr said that it looked like there was some sort of bone fusion going on in her abdomen area, and he would have a specialist look at the xrays, and they could tell me more. It looked, according to the dr, that she has arthritis in her hips, so she has to take meds for that.
