The pain of Ascites
Ascites in dogs is an abnormal buildup of fluid in the abdomen. It is also called abdominal effusion. Though ascites is usually a secondary symptom of another possible serious issue, it can bring symptoms of its own. Signs include vomiting, pain or a distended abdomen among other things.
Abdominocentesis is one possible therapy that is used to treat ascites. It involves manually removing some fluid by tapping the abdomen which provides a relief from pain.
This poor furry was suffering from ascites since long time. She was brought at our shelter from Anamnagar. Our team did the necessary medication and now she is under the intense care of our team. We hope and pray for her speedy recovery.
