Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello and thank you for asking your question. My name is***** will try to help.
Is he standing and yelping? Or doing anything while he is yelping? While he is doing it can you give him a treat or pet him and get him to stop?
Ok so the reason I was asking if you can stop him by petting him or giving him a treat is because if you can not stop him then it could be a mild type of seizure activity.
I would definitely make a video of it happening to show your vet.
If you could stop him from doing it then it sounds like he is uncomfortable or in some kind of pain that comes and goes.
If it became more of an issue when he received the cortisone injection I am hoping it will subside when the cortisone injection wears off in 2-3 weeks.
Ok, yes keep trying to get a video of him doing it.
One of the main clues with a seizure type activity is that you can not stop the dog with a treat, voice, or touch.
Yes try that. If that stops him right away then it most likely is not a seizure. But then you will still have to have your vet examine him and try to figure out where he is uncomfortable in his body. That would require an in person exam ; )
And continue to try to get a video of him doing it too.
You are welcome. : )
Glad to help.
