Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

This sudden odd behavior usually means that LoDo has had an allergic reaction to something such as an insect or contact allergy. It is a good sign that he has eaten but for now,, give him Benadryl at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs. If this is an allergic reaction, you will see LoDo calming down within a few hours. Continue this until the symptoms subside. If LoDo does not respond to this, than there is something else going on that will require veterinary attention to be sure we have not missed something.

Does that make sense to you?
