The right side of my dog's stomach is hard. Is this a sign of something serious? Should i take her to the vet?

She is a 5 year old pekingese and not spayed. She grunts whenever i pick her up and has difficulty pooping.

Take her to the vet right AWAY!! She could have a hernia, ulcer or worse. Talk to the vet about having her spayed so that you both do not have to go through the heat cycles any more. If she has a hernia, they can fix it at the same time as the spay. When was the last time you had her anal glands expressed? She could be in serious pain- do not let her suffer and take her in now! Also look for a food or treats with at least 4% fiber to help her go... ^_^
