Yorkie can't walk right

One of my yorkies started walking weird lastnight, she couldnt sit but she would lie down on her stomach, going down to lay she would take a while just to do it, she won't drink or eat anything and doesnt seem to be in any pain. She also looks like she needs to go to the bathroom by the way she arches her back a bit but never does. What should i Do?

Hi, Alex,

Sorry to hear about your little dog.  From the symptoms you describe, it sounds like this is most likely a disc herniation or GME, but could also be pancreatitis or another inflammatory disease in the abdomen.

You should take your dog to a veterinarian immediately and possibly be prepared for referral to a specialist.
