Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Good morning, JACustomer. Thanks for your question.It's very possible that you not feeing well as has her concerned for you. However, another thing to consider is that it's the 4th of July weekend and dogs are extremely sensitive to changes. They can hear much better than we're able and can detect fireworks from miles away. Even if they were not directly in your neighborhood, they could very well be causing her some anxiety as well which could be changing her behavior. This may become more obvious through the weekend as more fireworks are shot off.It may help to give her some benadryl to take the edge off. Many dogs will experience mild sedative effect from 1-2mg/pound of regular benadryl. If you are concerned that this may be linked and your vet is open tomorrow, it may be worth requesting a prescription of acepromazine or alprazolam to see if this helps her through the weekend and if her behavior returns to normal come next week.
