Hi this is DR J and I would be happy to assist you with your pet. First off, this sounds very suspicious for a back problem. YOU need to take her back to your vet and have xrays made of her back but more importantly have someone check out her back that is familiar with back disease.The other possibility is that your baby has a GI issue like pancreatitis. These are the two primary things that need to be checked out. Banfield insurance covers wellness visits but will not cover this problem as your dog is sick. Have a vet check for these two things and if they cannot find anything at your Banfield vet then I would see another vet since you have to pay for illness visits anyway. I do hope this helps you and please let me know if I can be of further assistance. I will be checking my computer again tomorrow night after work. Most Sincerely, ***** *****
