Something's wrong w/ Gucci?!

I'm panicked because, everything was going "fine" this morning until Gucci went upstairs and I heard her 'whimpering/crying' (like in a painful way! ) So I go up there and she's crying and DH and I are looking her over, checking her paws, body, etc. To see if maybe she stepped on something? But I can't find ANYTHING!

She keeps whimpering and not wanting to move, although..she will walk short distances like 4-5 ft and then lay down!,. She's panting and wont' DRINK, she won't EAT! I just cooked her some fresh hot sirloin and put some rice cereal and bits of cheddar cheese on the plate (she won't even eat the CHEESE!)

I can tell she's in pain But I have no idea WHAT it is?!?

Any ideas? She's never acted like this before..WELL, maybe once when she was stung by the bee, but I don't think that is what happened.

Husband said she was fine and just laying on the bed resting w/ him for a few minutes and then started crying?!?! He swears no type of jump preceeded the crying?!

That is very scary - poor Gucci!! Maybe she just got a stich in her side, or something like that. I would watch her closely, and if this doesnt change in a hour or so, I would get right to the vet! If she has never done this before, there must be something really bothering her.
She isnt afraid of something is she? Anything new in the house.
Logan cries and whines all the time, when scared, hungry, potty time etc, so it would not bother me if he did it. But if Gucci never whines like that...

That just doesn't make since Kara, I know I read where you said she wasn't eating as well the last few days.

I would take her in to the vet as soon as they open. I know it's so scary when they are sick, because they can't tell us what is wrong.

Preston came up to me the other day and started pawing and whining to get in the chair with me. I could tell something was wrong. He usually will just lay at my feet. I checked him over and found he was getting a ear infection.

Keep us posted.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Oh how scary Kara, one of the things I always try and remember is when the last time they went to the bathroom and pooped, probably because my vet always asks when they are not feeling well.

I would also consider bringing her to the vet this morning if things do not change. Sending lots of good vibes over to you & Gucci.

Please keep us updated on how things are going.

Oh my gosh, Kara that's so scary, take her to the best vet asap. We all adore Gucci from afar and will be sending her healing prayers.

Thanks!

I just dont know WHAT is wrong? But she is not acting right. She does whimper and whine, yes...but not like this, this is different...more of a painful/pitiful whimper instead of a 'play with me' whimper. She won't play either, she won't chase the ball, she won't drink, she won't eat. Yesterday itself wasn't 'highly' unusual as far as not eating, but flipping her nose up at even cheese and saltines this morning is NOT like her at all. She loves sitting on the couch w/ me and munching on saltines...

I don't think my vet has re-opened from the fire? I'm going to have to find a new vet. I just wish I had an idea what is wrong? She's not yelping at any particular 'spot'.

Kara, I would try calling your vet, they may have a recording on what vet they recomend or better yet the may be using an office at a different location. Good luck, hugs to you both.

I would be going the the closest vet. After the initial pain dogs usually do not keep whimpering. It is a primitive thing of not wanting to seem weak in the pack. Good luck. Keep us posted.

Ok, I called their phone number and got the answering machine, someone should be there around 8:30-9, so apparently my vet has the phone forwarded SOMEwhere. I guess I'll go shower and call back when they open and see if they are working out of some other building.

She's stopped whining, besides when my DH left, she got upset about that. DH and I had the odd premonition that she sensed something was 'wrong' with him. Told him to be safe, no 'road rage' and don't get worked up.. he was thinking the same thing! How odd is that?

I kept asking him what she was doing before she started crying, and he says 'nothing', I didn't hear any "YELP" like when they get hurt before the crying? I didn't have the TV on and can hear the whole house. I know every creek and sound here.

ugh. She's sleeping right next to me right now. Am I over-reacting? I'm really bothered she hasn't drank anything this morning.
