Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Do you have a video of her chattering her teeth? 2) When does this occur? 3) Do you see any drooling? 4) Is she intact or spayed? 5) Does she have any dietary sensitivities? Any particular efforts with her food (low calorie for weight control? organic?)
The chattering that you're seeing, does it look like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=El_8HNgssy4
A potential exists for this to be seizure activity. If this is a chronic issue for her, I would recommend that you try to catch video of this happening and log how often it happens. When we think of seizure activity, we typically think of pets losing consciousness but this is not always the case. Sometimes pets maintain consciousness during certain types of seizures. It would be wise to have blood work run on her to be sure that an underlying cause (such as organ dysfunction, electrolyte issues, etc) isn't to blame.As far as the food concern, when do you see loose bowels? When she's given treats of a different type of food or she's given a fast change of food instead of a slow change? Please tell me more and give examples, if needed.
Checking in, Billie. How is your girl?
