My dog is acting strange. I found her sleeping in the

My dog is acting strange. I found her sleeping in the bathroom this morning, then when I went downstairs I found a brown puddle on the floor. Not sure if it was urine or diarrhea. She hasn't eaten all day. When I came home she usually meets me at the door, instead she was in the hallway and didn't greet me. I called to her and she didn't come. When I went upstairs she followed me. Walking and running just fine. But she didn't jump up on me for me to pet her like normal. She is a very submissive dog and will roll on her back for me to run her belly when I tell her to. She now does this when I just look at her. She's acting like she did something wrong.. But it concerns me that she's not acting happy and the brown puddle, and of course the not eating. She loves her food and is borderline overweight. Any ideas?

I have a dog who's about 11lbs. And 6 years old. She was

I have a dog who's about 11lbs. And 6 years old. She was with my aunt at her home hile i was at work. My aunt owns 2 other dogs, a collie who is larger over 50pounds and a jack Russell who is medium sized about 20 pounds. She left home and as she returned the dogs were excited and jumping around as they normally do when she comes home. My dog and the 2 others have been staying with each other for quite some time and get along well. When my aunt came home, they were jumping on the door and then my dog started to cry extremely hard. As she opened the door my dog walked out crying and her two back legs were dragging and she couldn't walk on all 4 legs as she normally would. There is no vet available on Guam after hours and wanted to know what I could do. She is sleeping now. Her legs don't appear to be broken and when I touch it she's not crying. But she still is dragging her two back legs and no longer able to jump up on the bed like she normally does or wag her tail. Please help. It's 10pm and the vet clinics don't open until 8am which is still 10 hours away.

About a week ago my dog has been acting strange. He is a 12

Hi!So about a week ago my dog has been acting strange. He is a 12 year old Bichon Frise. Every time he gets up to try to walk he starts yelping in pain. He isn't limping it just hurts for him to walk. So basically he sits and doesn't move. The first couple of nights he threw up as well. But that has stopped since.We took him to the vet where they did an X-ray, blood test and physical examination. He did not yelp even when the doctor physically inspected him all over but they gave him pain medication as well as antibiotics (cause he had a small infection in his foot). However after all the examinations, they did not find anything wrong with him. And he was walking in the vet office without much problem-vet said it could be adrenaline). We took him home however and he does not walk. He is eating and drinking fine however. He does not act lethargic at all. Every time we need him to move we have to carry him. His poo and pee are normal when we do manage to get him to walk outside. We bought him his favourite treats but he won't walk to us to eat them. He will however eat it if we come up to him to eat it.I cannot seem to find out what is wrong with him.

A very healthy and active 4yr old Chesapeake Bay Retriever,

A very healthy and active 4yr old Chesapeake Bay Retriever, nutered, has stopped urinating and pooping. Still goes for walks, goes to trees and bushes, does not even attempt to urinate. Finally needed to poop but would get in stance and just sit down as if he could not hold the position. Tried several times then gave up. Did go an hour later but no urinating. Urinating about once every 12hrs. Pooping every other day, normal is twice a days with frequent urinating and marking on walks.Appetite good but much slower at eating and may not finish all at once. No vomiting. Ultrasound was good, blood work good, no blockage showing. Occasionally trotting during walks but has been seen going a little sideways. No exray's yet. No pain areas by touch but a Vet says the slight drooling he has is a sign of pain. Reluctant to go outside because he knows what we want him to do. Reluctant to get up on bed where he normally sleeps. Seems comfortable laying down on belly or side though.Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
