Strange GI problems?
Hi. I have a 2 year old male havanese. He has had two episodes of very strange GI distress - as far as I can tell. This is what happens (all of a sudden): If I am petting him or if he tries to jump up on bed or couch he will let out a painful yelp and shriek if I try to figure out where it hurts. What I have noticed is that he is tense ALL over. His genital area is inflamed and his whole body is very tight. He generally lies very still, on his side, and stares out with open eyes - never falls asleep. He won't roll onto his back - starts shrieking in pain. He will also start shaking all over after an episode of being moved.
This has happened on two occaisions that I can remember, in the afternoon, and I have had him on my bed monitoring him. He eventually falls asleep and seems to be better the next day. Bowel movements seem to be normal. This is a pretty strange experience since he is the first Havanese I have had and also the first small dog I have had. I am wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar to this with their Havanese.
