Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions

Fear and discomfort can both show these signs. If this persists through to the morning, I would recommend that she be examined by your vet. She may need a few days of pain medication if the kick was hard enough.If she is commonly a nice dog but attacked the cat out of the blue, I would talk to your vet about running some blood work to check her thyroid levels to see if this might have contributed. Dogs who are typically stable in temperament sometimes lose their cool with other animals when battling hypothyroidism. We can see panting caused by this as well.
