Great suggestion Megan!  Can't believe I forgot to suggest Dodger's list.  It really is a great resource and really does help you feel better about the process.

My doxie, Abby, acted like that when she had back pain...she wouldn't move and would only eat if I fed her by hand. I also had issues getting her to go potty and I had to offer her water frequently (her meds made her thirsty, but she didn't want to move herself to her water bowl). I kept her contained in a playpen until she was moving around because it was easier to lift her out of that than to try to get her out of her crate. I highly recommend checking out www.dodgerslist.com. It contains a lot of great info about what to do and what to talk to your vet about.

Going through this is very stressful, but there are so many success stories of dogs who are doing great now, so know that there is hope.

She was acting weird but not really crying out in pain, now after him giving her a shot of pregnisone a strong steroid, and a pain pill she won't move much and has no reactions just lays in her kennel, doesn't even want to eat unless I hand feed her. She went from walking around to this.
