Customer Question

Hi Dr. My dog (15 lb matipoo, 7) has been acting very strange, lethargic, and yelping when i applied pressure to lower back. She will allow me to put her on her back and stretch out her legs but she's very tense and her tail is down, she's just not being herself. She got into the trash and all I could find was old bagel chips. She is drinking, urinating and defecating normally but she does prefers to lye down rather than play w me, which is completely out of character...she's trying to move as little as possible. What do you think it could be? All legs flex and extend normally.
