My 10 year of Havanese started tunneling behind furniture…

Customer Question
My 10 year of...

My 10 year of Havanese started tunneling behind furniture and under beds. Constant and started in last couple of days.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?

He has always had separation anxiety when I am gone but he doing the tunneling even with me home.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

He doesnt seem to be hurt in any way. He eats fine and drinks plenty of water

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the dog's name?

Sam

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

No is a very active 10 year old. Loves to run and play and that does not seem to have changed either. Just the aggressive tunneling under and behind furniture.

Hello,

I am Dr. Snow, and I can try and help you with Sam. Does he seem to be drinking or peeing any more than normal? Any other symptoms?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA

I couldn't be more satisfied! This is the site I will always come to when I need a second opinion.

JustinKernersville, NC

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.

EstherWoodstock, NY

Thank you so much for taking your time and knowledge to support my concerns. Not only did you answer my questions, you even took it a step further with replying with more pertinent information I needed to know.
