Q. My dog seems nostalgic and crunching abdominal area. Seems in discomfort but is not whining heart rate seems fast and she seems cold

Answered By

A. Sadly, our dogs cannot speak to us and tell us what's wrong when they don't feel right. She needs to be seen by the vet to determine why she seems to be favoring her abdominal area and acting not quite herself. She may need lab work and perhaps an x-ray for starters.
