ok, that's okay...this is totally out of character for her.
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

The signs you are describing are consistent with abdominal pain. The restlessness and frequent stretching are worrisome. This could be related to gastroenteritis or a more serious problem such as a GI foreign body.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Because of the potential for a serious problem, I do recommend having her evaluated by a local vet tonight. I would start with a physical exam and an x-ray of her abdomen.
