Help!!! very scared!!!

Hello,

My dog is 6 years old and she is half bulldog and boxer. i walk her every day no more that 30 mins. In the last couple of nights she has been waking up with this terrible cry, like someone has kicked her in the stomach. Since the first time that she has cried, i have stop walking her thinking that it might be muscle spasms. I have noticed that when she does cry and yelp she arches her back and walks very slowly. I do have a vet appointment in a couple of weeks. I would like some help in understanding what is making her cry like that.

I am just wondering if it is a urinary track infection. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

You better call you vet and get an appointment right away. She seems to be in a lot of pain and with such vague symptoms its impossible to diagnose her over the internet.

Keep us updated and best of luck at the vet!!

I agree with Masha. If the pain is bad enough for her to be arching her back and waking up from sleep, there's something serious enough happening that she needs to be sooner than two weeks from now. She may be experiencing some sort of bloat or a partial obstruction. Is she still peeing and pooping normally?
