Acting different sitting on...

Acting different sitting on floor and falling asleep. Won’t sit with me when I sit down

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?

Not acting normal

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

Not sure he’s in pain, my guess would be hips

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the dog's name and age?

Rebel and 9years

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Rebel?

9

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Rebel?

Hello,

I am Dr. Snow, and I can try and help you with Rebel. What kind of dog is he? What is he doing right now?

He is a chihuahua. Right now he is laying down. He lays for a few minutes then gets up, moves to another position. His ears are pointed back and when he gets up his tail is tucked in between his legs.

Hello,

Sorry for the delay. I signed off when you didn't respond right away. I would still like to help if you need it. How is he doing today? It does sound like he might be painful with the fact his ears being pinned and his tail tucked.

Is he still acting abnormal? Any new symptoms?
