Have a Lhasa Apso. she suddenly without warning began

Customer Question

Have a Lhasa Apso. she suddenly without warning began experiencing severe pain on her lower area from her chest to her belly. It's too painful for her to jump on the couch, when she tried she screamed for a solid minute at least. It's also equally painful to the slightest touch. she has urinated twice but no bowel movement since this began about 8 hours ago. She hasn't drank anything but I did offer her a piece of lunch meat and she was eager to gobble it down. Any help would be appreciated.
