Was it Dachshund vet mentioned scallywag , my grandpa used to say they were prone to disc issues.
So sorry to hear Beau is not good.
If he has been recently vaccinated could be worth questioning with vet as to if it could be an adverse reaction, though will not change current situation.
My understanding is that stretching (front part of dog bowed down, bum in air) can be an indication of abdominal pain.
Yes Dachshunds are prone to disc problems , my dog is a small x breed with no Dach in him, but 4 yrs ago he was not moving properly so i took him to vet , thankfully vet x rayed him , and then we were sent to referral vets for MRI , where it was found he had a leaking displayed disc , he had op to remove the disc , which i am so pleased my vet got the referral quickly , my dog is now 10 yrs old and is fine.
Poor Beau. Hope he feels better soon scallywag. He hasn't eaten anything out of the norm has he? A friend's Springer was running around quite normally on our walk a few weeks ago and we stopped to talk to some other people. While we were stood I just happened to glance at him and notice he didn't quite look right. He was making some odd stretching movements. Then he threw up a load of grass. After that he was back to running around again, but after we left the people we'd been talking to, he threw up a bit more which had stones and some sort of bottle top in it. Again he seemed back to normal after that, but she ended up having to take him to the vets at 2am where he had an operation to remove some broken pottery(!) and a bottle top.
I'm glad to see that Beau is back to normal now scallywag.
But I don't believe it.....Last night Jasper had a beef rib, and now today Jasp has the exact same symptoms that Beau had. I've given him a dose of Loxicom now fingers crossed that he responds as well as Beau has. If he's no better by tomorrow then he's going to have to go to the vets too.
Jasper went down hill again last night, and just couldn't get comfy, but at about 3.30 this morning he got me up to let him out. He had big poo and the scratched with his back legs ran back it and off up to bed. When I got up at 5.30am he did the same thing, and thankfully he's been back to his normal self since.
We think he's just eaten too much bone at too late of night and developed trapped wind. He won't be allowed to do that again I can tell you.

caz2golden: Sorry not on much my PC is sending me around the bend every time I use mouse it double clicks when I only single clicked! Part of me is hoping it is a windows issue that will get updated rather than just PC getting old and broken!

alfiemummy: It's most likely your mouse that needs replacing Caz - that's happened to me twice now and both times it's been fixed by getting a new mouse

tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: I can remember when that happened with Lexi.
