I took my maltese on a hike yesterday in 95 degree weather. Half way up, he started to hyperventilate and wouldn't walk. He fell to his side. I gave him a lot of water and carried him back down, brought him home, and bathed him. He was being very moody but I thought he was just exhausted and upset that I took him out. Now, I see that I could touch him anywhere but his lower back at one specific spot. I thought he would sleep it off but he still squeals when I touch him. Help! Does anyone know what may have happened? He is still drinking water,eating, and walking around. Thank you in advance!

When a dog has back pain, it is important to find out the source of that pain and then to treat it in order to prevent any further complications or damage, so I believe the best thing is to take your dog to a vet to make sure if everything is all right , to avoid any additional injuries please read this article :

And don't worry I am sure that your maltese will be ok

Good Luck

Just like people, dogs can often develop back problems during their lifetimes. Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD) occurs when discs in the dog's spine deteriorate, collapse, bulge out, rupture, herniate or become displaced. ... This compresses the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in pain or even paralysis
