Customer Question

My 5 month old standard poodle just woke up in the middle of the night barking and circling. Now he seems normal. I felt him over and h didn't seem to have pain in his legs. The barking was more than a yip during a dream. He was awake and I had never seen him so agitated

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

Was he circling in a particular direction?

Is he holding his tail down or dragging his bottom on the floor?

Any tenderness or changes (ie sores, lumps, redness) on either side of his rectum?

Any tensing/tenderness in his belly?
