    Yes I'm going to the vet , but the vets open here are all occupied till Saturday so I have 2 more days..
    1. It started by finding out 4 days ago that my dog pee'd inside the house which she never does
    2. This happened again 1 days later.
    3. The next day she did not but i noticed she was shivering alot and heavily breathing
    4. Last night she wouldnt sleep all day or even lay down , she mostly stood the whole night staring into my stairway or at walls for long intervals for no reason
    5. She has also been walking since yesterday in a weird way , sort of like stiff front legs
    6. Also since yesterday she has her back raised so much in a worrying way, yet if i touch her anywhere in her body she doesnt seem to feel pain about it
    7. And now she refuses to eat anything except some biscuits , and doesnt respond to what we say as much.. ( I also noticed she keeps digging randomly into the furniture with her claws )

      She has been for me for 7 years now ... Never seen her even close to this :(

    Please someone help...

    Do you have any emergency vet service where you are? I'm assuming you have checked but if you can find one, it would be best cos your girl does not sound at all well.

    Has she been spayed?

    As said, you really need to get to a vet ASAP

    I agree with Rona. I'm so sorry but there's nothing we can do other than keep our fingers crossed.

    If you tell a vet how urgent it is, they will make time to see your dog. You just have to be a bit pushy.

    The vet will just be thinking you want a standard appointment. You need to tell them that it's an emergency/ urgent situation. That way they will know to prioritise you and your dog over less time-critical appointments.

    I add my urging you to please seek emergency medical treatment for your dog today. She must be suffering terribly and may not even live until Saturday. Put her in the car and take her to your nearest vet and take her inside and say " I have an emergency. " Shout it out if you have to to get someone to pay attention.
