Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help. I have to say I am quite concerned about your lass.The posture she is showing is what we call the "prayer position" and is a sign of abdominal pain in dogs. This can be seen with a few different issues. The most common are pancreatitis, severe gastroenteritis, and secondary to their eating something that is causing blockage or trauma to the gut. Less commonly we will see this with gut twists or trauma. And just to note, her hiding is also a red flag that Arizona is feeling vulnerable and unwell.In this case, we need to tread with care. If she is sore enough to show these signs, then we'd be best to have her seen as soon as we can do so. Her vet can determine which is causing her signs, address it and also get her on strong injectable pain relief. And the sooner we get to the root of this the sooner we can get her feeling better and halt this pain behavior. Please take care,Dr. B. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. **Afterwards, I would be grateful if you would rate my service by clicking on the "Rate my Expert' button at the top of the page as this is the only way I am credited for helping you.
