Default Why was he yelping!!!? I'm at a loss!!

Not sure if there is any answer to this question but my chihuahua Boss wouldn't eat his dinner last night or breakfast this morning because he got a hold of some cooked chicken. Even tonight when I went to feed him he was still being very fussy and wouldn't really eat. I hand fed him a few bites of his raw chicken. Suddenly out of no where he kinda hunched over and puts his tail between his legs and started to walk away from me. My first thought was maybe he was going to throw up so I picked him up and put him back down (in the kitchen where he was eating) as I picked him up again and was about to head towards the door he just started yelping like crazy out of no where. Immediately I put him down he stops for a moment but then starts yelping again.

After about a minute he stopped. He never threw up and didn't need to go potty. What could it have been? He isn't typically a yipper.

Any thoughts?

Thanks everyone!!!

Did he eat any bone in the cooked chicken? It sounds like he might be in pain, I would have your vet check him out.

No bones in the chicken. I have just started feeding him raw about a week ago. Seemed to be doing great at first now he seems to be fussing over it and not eating sometimes. Not really sure what else to do!

I'll be calling my vet first thing tomorrow!!

Maybe something with his teeth? Is his mouth ok? Hope he feels better soon!

Oy! This might sound stupid but maybe it's heavy gas from the chicken fat since its a new diet? My vet says when you increase the proteins in your baby's diet quickly that it can give them stomachaches occasionally. I hope he feels better, perhaps some Warm water downed milk will help relax him

I think you're 100% right!! He's little belly was gurgling before I fed him so maybe I just put to much pressure on it when I picked him up. That would explain why both times I picked him up he yelped so loudly but never ended up throwing up!

Thank you so much!!!! I love this form!

Good idea! I bet that was it. That yelping was likely the dramatic Chihuahua Scream of Death. Gemma has had her moments in the past when she's let out the CSOD to scare me half to death. She has done it when I clipped her nails the first time, when she pulled her leg out of her harness, and several times when she has a had a turd stuck to her bum, lol. It sounds like bloody murder but it's always something minor. Hopefully it was just some gas with Boss and he was scared of the discomfort he was feeling. I hope he is feeling better now.
