The event that you describe is strange, but it's not totally specific to one issue. It could indicate a neurologic event like a seizure, or it could have been caused by something painful, for example.

For now, I think it is reasonable to just monitor him at home. If he has another episode, try to get a video of it with your phone. Then he should be evaluated by your local vet. I would start with a physical exam and some blood tests to screen for underlying problems.

Hi it has not happened since but today for some reason he refuses to eat not even table scraps which he has never refused before.

Is he eating his regular food though?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He usually does today he ate his food I don't know what happened with yesterday he wouldn't eat his dog food or anything but as of now he seems fine.
Dog Veterinarian: brisadog,

OK, for now I recommend monitoring him closely. Watch his appetite, and watch for further episodes of crying out etc. If you see any of these, he should be evaluated by your local vet. We can then proceed with the physical exam and blood testing +/- x-rays.
