I have a 15yr old maltese poodle, male. He is currently walking with an arched back (upward). Hope you understand what I mean-like a cat would stretch. He does not cry but in his eyes it seems as though he is in pain. What do you suggest I do??? I think I should mention that he has blood in his urine.
Thank you

You should definitely take your dog to the vet for examination. It sounds like it is in pain. Please, do not delay, take your dog to your veterinarian.
