Dear Phil,

You should take your dog to see your veterinarian as soon as possible. This could be a sign of pain. Possible causes could be pancreatitis, ingestion of a foreign body, or ruptured disc to name a few. These types of conditions have better outcomes if treated early.

Please let us know what you find out and we can help provide you with some concurrent holistic things to do to support the body.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
