Dog having mucus from anus and can't poop

Hello,

Sorry, it's my first time here but I'm going to go straight to the point.

I first got my dog about 1.5 years ago from a shelter. He was mostly fine but was a little skinny and had a part of his digestive tract protruding past the muscle/tendons that made it hard for him to poop.( sorry I don't remember exactly what that was off the top of my head.) this caused a slight protrusion that was visible from around his tail. Well we fixed that and I don't think that is what is happening now.

Now he all of a sudden started running around, he vomited yellowish liquid ( the color of his food) but no food. The vomit has stopped after day one. Then from there his poop doesn't come out. Yesterday he had yellow mucus coming out of his anus when he poops. Today it's just a clear liquid but still no poop. He urinates quite a lot still. He has gotten very larthagic and walks became very slow and stops, not sure if he doesn't want to move or doesn't want to go somewhere. His walks are very short now. He also hasn't eaten for a few days now. When he tries to poop, maybe some clear liquid comes out but he can't get to the complete squat position and he looks like he is in pain as his back is roll down as if he stretches out normal it will hurt him. He has only been sleeping recently but will often pee in the house, not normal. His anus is also very red now.(In short he is acting like a constipated person that needs to pee a lot with the flu.)

The morning of the day it started we went for a run and he was fine. He even pooped. Being all of a sudden really makes me worried that he ate something but I can't imagine what.

Thanks for any advice.

P.s. We went to the vet on day one as the dog shivering made me worry but the vet said that his original digestive tract problem was still ok but he doesn't know what it is. He said it may just be that the dog didn't want to eat dried dog food as he gets can food ones a month. I didn't really believe that but decided to give it a little.

Poor pupper!

Lack of appetite, unable to defecate, lethargy, possible pain... all signs he needs to go back to the vet or perhaps even a different vet for a second opinion asap.

Best of luck!

You definitely need to get him to a Vet that will examine and test until he or she does find the problem. From your description it could be a blockage, which can be fatal if not treated.

So took Mirin, my dog, to the vet today and after an x-ray and a ultrasound (at least that is what I think it is, being that I live in Japan it's hard to be sure at times.) they found a group with that they think may be urinary bladder cancer that due to its position is blocking some part of his digestive tract. But we are making another appointment to get another test (a biopsy using a special imagery tool) that will tell for sure on the vets recommendation...

it's hard to imagine that he may have that. Because I lost a grandfather to cancer like that, lost my mother just a year ago, just had another family member with another cancer scare (luckily it was benign), my childhood
family dog just past 6 months ago(but of old age) and we just got mirin from the shelter a little over a year ago...

I'm sorry I shouldn't have written that last part.

Thank you for your advice before.

Sorry you and Mirin are having such a rough time. Lets hope it turns out to be something that can be treated and he recovers completely.

I'm sorry to hear that.

No need to apologise, tumor type diseases are awful in that they are hard to predict and clusters can feel like something sinister. Most often it's just really bad luck to get clusters over different species, though it might be worth talking to a doctor if you are worried about how many in your family have been effected.
