My 13 yr old Shih Tsu has eaten dirt, has had diarrhea and now swollen anus and an odor.Do I take him to a vet
Just moved into house with no backyard landscaping. My dog comes in the house with dirt all over his mouth. I think he is digesting the dirt. He is 13 yrs. And having trouble with bowel movements anyway because of arthritis in the rear of his back. Do I take him to a vet?

Yes, I would today, this morning, if possible. You never know what might have been in the dirt. Good Luck!

yes, dog usually eat dirt if they are missing something in their diet or have other problems. A good vet check up should help to figure out what is going on. Good luck
