Dog yelping when touched.

February 13th, 2008, 11:23 PM
My dog, Kya, is a chihuahua/terrier mix. She's around 7 or 8, we're not sure because we found her at a dumpster in October 2003. She was pregnant and had 6 puppies (one died). Since then, she's had one false pregnancy.

Well now, she's lactating which isn't a big deal. My friend was petting her, though, on her stomach and head and she yelped-he figured it was from her stomach as her teats must be sensitive.

However, my dad was later petting her on the head and she yelped twice. My sister took her upstairs to sleep with her, barely touched her and Kya yelped repeatedly.

She doesn't do it every time touched, which made my mom think she was doing it for attention at first, but does anyone here know what it could be? I've googled and can't find anything. Sorry this is so long!

Take her to the vet and get her....

1) Checked over

2) Spayed

We're not vets here. Your dog needs to see one to determine what is wrong with her.
I don't understand why isn't she spayed?
