Molly is acting super weird even for her and I have no idea why.

Yesterday morning she started freaking out, shaking so bad, just acting really weird. The weather was fine (and stayed that way) so no storms. In the end I gave her a couple of xanax and that calmed her down.

About 6 hours after I had given them, she went for Wonka. It freaked me out big time but I pulled her off him quickly and threw her in a crate. Wonka was so freaked he urinated and went and hid under our bed frown She has never done anything like that before.

She was fine the rest of the evening. Now we have been up for 45 mins and she was fine, went out to toilet, ate her breakfast and then just now I went to let them out and she started whimpering, squeaking. She rushed the bedroom door and tried to jump onto our bed (brad was asleep so I think she wanted him) which she never does.

And now she is shaking.

Nothing has changed that I can think of. I have no idea what is wrong with her unless she is just having a long brain fart frown

Oh, no! Not Miss Moo! This is a lot for you to deal with right now, along with Cooper's issues. I'm so sorry! hugging hugging hugging

Any seismic activity? Any millitary bases nearby? Anything your neighbors might be doing to rattle your dogs-- such as a silent dog whistle? (a neighbor did that to my last GSD for over 2 weeks until someone caught him. Horrible!)

I would get her thyroid checked. I'd also get her vision very carefully checked, too.

Any change in her food? What is Molly Moo eating? How/where is her food stored?

Could Molly have gotten into anyone's medication? I know you're so careful and very responsible, but dogs can be curious and sniffy/mouthy. paw

Sending positive, calming vibes for your good girl. She's usually so happy and peaceful! You'll get this sorted out. hug Sending Moo calming vibes. peacesign butterfly

The only thing I can think of other than what was mentioned is a possible bladder infection. My dogs act really strange just before any outward signs show.

Yes, exctly. Sounds so much like what Skye went through. It terrifed me to watch her and took way too long for me to find what was wrong. And so fast to see her act better when she was diagnosed for a UTI and on meds.

Please take a urine sample in for her.

Didn't something like this happen before or am I thinking of a different dog?

I wonder if she is having small seizures?

I agree to check for UTI.

Also, is the tummy really tight, which would be inflammation.

You don't have thinkgs like mountain lions around, do you?

Thank you all so much hugging

Now that I think of it she was a little odd the morning before too. (So 3 days in a row). Mum and dad came over today for Fathers Day and noticed she is just weird, hard to describe but clingy maybe?

Patti, thank you I looked up earthquakes and there was nothing, no military base either. I doubt very much about the dog whistle but it is possible I suppose.

No change in food and thank you for thinking about medicines (we have so many lol!) but no it is kept safely.

UTI is possible and I will do my best to chase her around and get a sample thank you. She is not peeing more frequently although I don't know if that happens in dogs like humans.

Ruth, yes she did have an odd patch before we moved. I had forgotten about that. How would they diagnose seizures if they are not noticeable to me?

Her tummy is normal and no critters other than the odd bunny, thank you though.

Kathy anything is possible at the this stage but I can't imagine it.

I will take her in for a check up tomorrow, urine sample (hopefully) and blood work. I suppose it could be her thyroid as she has been on a diet for so long and no changes to her fat fluffy butt. Poor Moo, I've been neglecting her a bit with all this Cooper stuff.

Thank you so much for all your ideas ladies, I will report back after the vet hugging

ETA: will also get them to check her eyes, thank you.
