Dogs love to jump up on people. Cats often do too. If you look around your home, you might find a cat or dog sitting quietly on someone’s lap. They would probably say “hello” if you picked them up. That’s because dogs and cats have very sharp, opposable toes. When you pick up a dog or cat, part of their body grabs onto something and they yowl. Cat owners also commonly notice that their dog’s paws growl when picking up its owner.
If your pooch is sick, get them to their vet immediately. Be aware of how much pain your pup is experiencing and take steps to ensure their safety before sending them back to you without further treatment. If all else fails, offer them a cool, soothing drink and try to keep them completely relaxed while they recover. They might need to spend time in your warm, dry environment, so make sure to ask beforehand. Do not leave them alone during the night, however. Any sudden change in temperature or sudden changes in lighting can cause them serious pain. Even if he feels better, this might not be enough for him to go back home again.

Why does my dog randomly scream in pain?
Dogs are naturally afraid of illness and fear getting sick. They do not want to hurt themselves, although they do get sick sometimes. Your pet’s nature is similar to your own, except that over time, your cat or dog will lose their fear of sickness and become more willing to suffer. Even if your pet isn’t sick, she or he will be sensitive to changes in temperature, stress, pain, cold, heat, wind, wetness, dampness, itching, excessive grooming, etc. This is why your animal will eventually show signs of pain (especially if it becomes chronic) until those areas heal. Therefore, even if the pain is slight, make sure it heals slowly. Give your pets plenty of time to recover from such injuries.

This is why they yammer when someone touches their backs. Dogs are actually capable of feeling pain, hence why puppies yowl when they see their parents cry.

Their screams are meant to scare us off rather than hurt us.
Why is my dog acting weird all of a sudden?
It could simply be boredom, illness or injury. You should really take note of whether there is a possibility of injuries or serious illness before bringing your pet to your vet. If you think your puppy might have suffered a serious injury or illness such as an ear infection, or if your kitty has experienced a bout of food refusal, you should immediately seek professional aid. Pets behave differently under stress. For example, dogs will sometimes sit down while stressed out. They will do this even though they know it means they get less food. This behavior is normal and usually happens anytime a dog is stressed. (See also: How Can A Dog Get Stressed?) Paraphrased: Pets perform their tasks normally even under stressful conditions.
