So i'm wondering if i need to be concerned or not.
Last night snoopy seemed pretty drowsy and after she woke up from a nap i went to go roll her over and scratch her tummy and she kept letting out little yelps...
so i picked her up... yelp...hm.
so i rolled her on her back and felt all over to see what was hurting... no yelp...
pick her up... yelp...
??? and since then she has been VERY drowsy...slept allll night without a peep and didn't even wanna go outside to pee this morning - just went to her crate and back to sleep...
sometimes she yelps on her own... sometimes when i touch her.
and she has a very abnormally low energy level (not that i'm really complaining but..ya know)..
does anyone have any ideas????? :S
thanks

Did she eat anything she shouldn't have that could have given her an upset tummy? Maybe she has a little tummy bug. Any nausea or diarrhea? I think a call to the vet is in order. Good luck, and let us know what happens.

Yes, I would definitely contact the vet. Especially if you are worried. We know our babies, and usually when we feel something is not right, it isn't.

Better be safe than sorry. Keep us updated.

I agree, you know your baby best. If you know something doesn't seem right then it's time for a vet visit. Please keep us updated.

PS-I love your avitar!

Yep, it at least warrents a phone call. Could she be less active because she has a hurt back/leg, etc.? Best to check it out. Good luck!

i had the exact same issue.. except when i took arty to the vet he couldnt figure anything out. The most we could think was that arty tried to sneak out the door as I opened it and the door hitting him might have bruised him. Thinking back, i think it could have been a sprained tail as well.

He would yelp when I tried to pick him up or sit him on his butt but then when i layed him flat and touched his stomach he was fine, and didnt mind however hard I pressed. but then when i picked him up he would yelp again. sometimes the pain would be so bad he would accidentally pee a little bit. He was also very sluggish that day but a few days later he was back to his old self again.

I would definately call the vet. Ask to speak with your vet personally. Tell him/her what is going on. Especailly with the weekend coming.

Let us know an update when you have a moment.

Oh, poor Snoopy! Is she out in the yard where she could be hunting things? My aunt and uncle had an opossum in their back yard. Every time they'd let their dog out he'd come to the door crying. It was biting him while he was out and wanting to play with it. They finally found the opossum hiding in the yard and got rid of it. No more bites on poor Buddy's nose now.

As for soothing her, I don't know. Maybe if you wash the bites up with some warm water and put a little bit of Bacitracin ointment on them, it will help with the pain. Give her a gentle kiss on the nose from me.

Oh no, poor Snoopy! Is she scratching? You can give her Benadryl, but probably no more than 1/4 to 1/2 of one for a puppy.

Keep us posted...

aww thanks guys
she's scratching.. but is just wayyyy more lethargic than usual
its nice in a bad way because she just lays there
haha aw poor thing!
she has only been on our grass... i tied her to the fence post yesterday and left her outside (in sight!) just to relax for awhile...
i'm wondering if there is something in the grass that could be causing it?
i've been brushing her lots and she seems to enjoy being scratched ..so maybe that'll help for now :S
anyways will find out tomorrow and let ya know! thanks again
