My dog Lexie keeps pacing on our bed when it's been bedtime

Customer Question

My dog Lexie keeps pacing on our bed when it's been bedtime for two hours. She's a Malti-she of 6 yrs old female. She's also sneezing a lot. Keeps licking her lips so to speak. This isn't normal. She was chewing on a small piece of rawhide. She's had water. Gone potty out in yard. Should i panic ? Can't sleep

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Any nasal discharge or congestion?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
