Re: Strange behavior

What does your vet say about this behavior? Since he has been examined and nothing appears to be wrong physically possibly it is mentally. When he does this I would try to remember what you have done earlier in the day or evening and write it down, possibly you can pin point what is triggering him to act this way. Could he be "playing" you. Are you and your husband leaders in your home. Or does your little one rule the roost? Has he gone through obedience training?

I would not give him milk of magnesia and/or a sedative or anything else unless you know what is causing him to act this way.

Please discuss in detail with your vet or a certified animal behaviorist.

Re: Re: Strange behavior

Hi, I wondered if you had found at any more information on your little dog's behaviour? We have a 4 year old miniture female, Mitzie, and she recently was spayed at the Vet's suggestion. A week later she is crying, whining, and carrying around her two squeak toys everywhere...and holds them in her mouth and crys. We are wondering if she thinks these are her babies? or if it has something to do with her being spayed recently. She is very clingy too. We return to the Vet this weekend and of course I will ask him also, but this behaviour has just been unusual and strange for her. The only other difference in her environment is that she has been kept in a crate (adequate in size for her weight and she can turn around okay, etc.) the past week or so since her surgery to protect her stitches because doctor said she needed to lay still.
I hope your own pup is better by now. Thanks, Andy
