It sounds like your dog may be experiencing some type of health issue. Without more information or the ability to examine your dog, it is difficult to say for sure what the cause may be and what the appropriate treatment would be. Some potential causes of the symptoms you describe could include an infection, parasite, or even a medical condition such as bloat or pancreatitis. It is important to take your dog to a veterinarian as soon as possible so they can properly diagnose the problem and provide the necessary treatment. In the meantime, make sure your dog has access to plenty of fresh water and try to keep them as comfortable as possible.
