Friend, the symptoms that you are describing in your dog are consistent with being in pain. As far as the source of pain this could be caused by many different medical conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination and some testing. But, common causes are: Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), ingestion of a foreign body, neuromuscular (pinched nerve along the back or a pulled muscle), etc. to name a few causes.
Unfortunately in this case we are very limited as to what you can do at home. I would have her checked tonight by ER veterinarian. Do not give over the counter pain killers most are toxic to dogs.
Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
