I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow my speaking with customers by phone in this venue. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. A dog who is lying down, vocalizing with his legs straight out is in trouble and needs to see a vet at your earliest convenience. I hope that you've already had that done. I have no manner in which to know why he's in that state. I don't know if he's been poisoned, his back went out on him, he was traumatized in some manner, or he's been ill and you're seeing the end stage of that illness. Whatever the etiology of his behavior, it's not something that you can manage at home.

Please respond with additional information or further questions or concerns if you wish.
