Q. Our dog loss appetite, then one day it just can stand.Its legs were straight and hard, can't eat anymore and cannot move. We just gave water for 4 day

A. This sounds like a very severe condition, it is not something that we could help you with over the internet, he needs to see a vet right away.

This could be caused by a foreign body obstructing his guts or by a severe internal disease.

Take him to an emergency vet in order to get diagnosed and treated.
