Hello! I really appreciate...

Hello! I really appreciate this service you're offering. My 20-mo-old toy poodle has started randomly crying out. It's one cry every few minutes. We've gone over his body and there seems to be nothing hurt on the outside. He's a nervous dog, even though he lives in a nurturing, all-adult home with a 45lb sheltie/shepherd mix that pretty much ignores him. Could it be nerves? This has gone on four 24 hours now. He also periodically shakes. I'm waiting for his vet to call me back. Any ideas? Thanks so much!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Dog Trainer. What is the dog's name?

Hamlet

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Dog Trainer should be aware of about Hamlet?

I don't think so. He has always had a nervous nature.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
his appetite and poops are normal.
Has he been scooting at all? Some dogs with anal gland issues will cry out like that. Is his tail tucked?

as a matter of fact, he has been scooting, which is highly unusual! I'll contact the groomer now. Anything else you can think of? THANKS!
No problem! It’s highly likely that is it. Dogs can act really weird when there anal glands are enlarged. Other possibility is fleas or allergies. Make sure he’s on a good flea preventative. Hope this helps. Thanks Dr Hill
