Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...Did the dog do anything strenuous right before this happened?If you press along her spine, does she act painful anywhere?How old is she?
