Dog having mucus from anus and can't poop
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.
