Yes, she has had bouts like this before. Her stool is oftentimes loose but I believe I can't give her any treats because when I do, the stool is very loose. A little bit of treat, less loose, m ore of a treat, more loose. She has never had the chewing at her haunch although she does tend to chew her toes. She does seem to be more lethargic. She also seems to have developed a recent habit of clicking her teeth. It all seems like a nerve problem.
Thank you so much. I went in to veterinarypartner.com and sadly, I believe, that she may well have Addison's disease. I have an appointment with our vet today and will have him do the tests. I hope she is not now in shock. What would be those symptoms? If she is in shock, I should take her right away.
Dr RaymondWe had all the tests on Olivia.clean blood; no Addison's. She is much better and l believe it could be nerves but she did develop diarrhea.I'm away until Monday so will learn more next week.
