Suddenly, severe abdominal pain occurred, and the dog was highly restless, even rolling on the ground, and sedatives could not make him quiet. In the first stage of the disease, the feces are discharged loosely, often mixed with a large amount of mucus or bloodshot eyes. In severe cases, the feces may be discharged black and red, and the feces stop in the later stage. When intestinal necrosis occurred, the sick dog became quiet and the abdominal pain seemed to disappear, but the spirit was still fatigued and collapse symptoms appeared. Vomiting often occurs when the intussusception of the small intestine occurs. Touch the abdomen, sometimes you can feel the intussusception of the intestine, like a sausage, oppressing the intestine, and the pain is obvious.

It can be diagnosed based on sudden severe abdominal pain, discharge of mucus or dark red blood in the stool, sausage-like and painful intestines when touching the abdominal wall, and the ineffective application of sedatives. If you can do X-ray examination, it will be helpful for the diagnosis of this disease.
