Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian for 14 years.
Have you or your regular veterinarian considered partial seizures? These can show up as any uncontrolled/obsessive behavior that is difficult to distract the dog from, but the dog remains conscious while they are happening. I had a similar patient who would "attack" one rear leg repeatedly after being hit by a car. He responded nicely to anti-seizure medications. You may consider taking a video of the episode and showing it to your vet. You may also consider taking your dog to see a neurologist, as they may have more information on the condition.
Good luck to you and Scooter!
I hope this answer helps you. If it does, please consider rating it.
