Unhappy Newbie with question

Hi all

newbie to this site

Sorry for the long question, but any advice would be welcome

Hi there,

My dog has been acting very strangly over the past few days and i am trying to figure out what could be wrong with her.... (if only dogs could talk)

Firstly, let me paint the broader picture:

My child has been home during the 3 week school holiday so our dog has been indoors and has been kept company all this time. Then on Friday night we had a function to attend and she was left alone from 6-9, Saturday & Sunday we were in & out the entire day. Monday was back to school so the usual routine followed where she is left outside (with a wendy house as shelter) until my child gets home from school.

So the symptoms started like this:

*She has this vacant look in her eyes
*She hardly wags her tail
*She has no emotion at all anymore
*She is no longer playful, she just lays around
*She is eating & drinking water
*She shakes & shivers
*And last night it seemed that she was in pain as she keeps pulling her hind legs up toward her stomach.
*Very restless at night..... she changes position continously through the night
*she looks like is in pain but she is not crying, although she does wimper.

I am leaning toward anxiety as i think the 3 week of being indoors and then the sudden shock of being left alone could have caused this.
We are showering her with love & cuddles... Are there any other suggestions? Would you recommend a visit to the vet?

Many thanks
Worried fur-mom

Get to a vet it sounds like a medical problem.

How old is your dog?
Bringing your dog to the vet may be the best solution for now.

Agree, go to the vet. Waiting for more serious symptoms to appear is a gamble.
