Hi, welcome to the forum.We are watching my moms dog noticed her back nails needed trining they were almost touching the pads on her feet. She did not like it we wrapped her in a towel and trimmed them. She went to her bed and has not come out. I took her out to give her a belly rub and noticed this protruding out of her. What is this do I need to take her to the vet? I’m including a phot of her and the protruding thing View attachment 257157

Is it that pinkish growth or her tail between her legs that we’re looking at? Could you get a pic of her whole tummy for context?
In general though, if a dog runs and hides, it’s best to leave them and let them come out in their own time. This is especially the case when the dog is in a relatively strange environment.
