Why is my dog walking around with a hunched back?

Report as

Yikes! You dog shouldn't be walking with a hunched back. This could be a bad sign of something really serious going on inside of him. Hip problems, spinal problems or nerve problems.

You should try to get the dog to the vet to check him out to be sure it isn't something really serious.

Rheada is right. A hunched gait on a dog is not a good sign. However, a vet is more qualified to assess the dog as hunching would mean a lot of things like a kidney problem, bone dislocation, gastro-intestinal issues and others.

Bubbles is correct. Intestinal issues will cause this more often than not. They arc their back to add volume to an expanding stomach for relief
