    I probably sound like a shitty dog owner to someone out there.

He's just experienced a run of bad luck and if things persist I'll have to take him to the vet today or tomorrow. I know it's conventional to immediately address the problem but he's stepped on things in the past without suffering for it for very long. He can still walk, though he's still sort of favoring his other 3 legs.
    Aw, isn't he a bit older now? Take him to the vet sooner, if that's the case. Shit doesn't bounce back so easily with age.

    Vets are obscenely expensive- I don't think anyone would blame you for wanting to wait and see. The constipation thing sounds a bit alarming, though, reading over it again. He might have a painful blockage. Don't wait too long. Try to, eh, observe when he's put out to relieve himself. See how much he strains or if he goes at all. And what comes out. You could try adding canned peas to his food, btw. That helped my dog out a lot.

    You might wanna look into low-cost "free" vet clinics in your area, too. They're not bad & cost significantly less for care.

    At this point, he's pooping without any blood or mucus to speak of, though they are a bit wet and loose. But yeah, I'll take him to the vet anyway; I can afford it. Last time I took a pet in to the vet for a serious issue (I think I told you about this), they went and put the hamster under oxygen. The face gear was meant for dogs and cats, and they charged my mom out the nose, so the whole thing was really just absurd. The thing that concerns me most is whether they'll ask for my consent before implementing any significant treatment.

    My other dog suffered from a dislocated disc in his vertebrae, and the vet suggested that we use a more "natural" treatment at far less the expense. He had, according to the vet, about a 5-10% chance of making it through his paralysis, and he trucked through it like a boss with a total turn around.

    They'll probably wanna update his vaccination shots, if any are needed.
    And to do a complete bloodwork- that, I don't think you should skip. They may ask for a stool sample when you go in. They like it to be within 24 hours of the appointment.

    They actually asked us to collect a urine sample for our dog which was awkward as fuck to get- with my cat they just put a small needle in & collect the urine, or something. But yeah.. they said a lot of people just try to catch it with a fucking.. soup ladle or some shit.. i didn't see how that'd work. Our dog was small.. so.. I resorted to taping a ziploc bag on his lower abdomen, fully encasing his little dog weiner, so, when he peed, it all went into the bag. I put that bag into a second plastic bag just for an extra barrier between me and the pee while transporting it to the vet.

    They may want to do a wound culture on the dogs paw, or do an Xray of his abdomen to check for blockages. These are costly but unfortunately necessary to see what's wrong.

    Yeah a ziploc or some sort of tupperware sounds more viable.

    Yes. I do. Very much...even the severe ones.

    Ha...it's okay. Your displays of inferior Fi are safe with me!
