Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help you and Maggie. I'd like to ask a few more questions to better assess the situation.

1. Did this happen suddenly today?

2. Anything new or unusual in today's schedule? New food or treats?

3. Any vomiting or diarrhea? Did she eat today?

Thank you

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing unusual. It has happened before. Same behavior when a T-storm happens only milder. She eats well. Plays hard. It is like she senses that something is wrong but there isn't.

Thank you for answering my questions. I agree, this sounds like either mild anxiety/fear or a pain response. Given she is 12, has she had any other unusual behaviors? Trying to follow a different schedule than before, any accidents in the house, forgetting previous training?

I wanted to follow up and see how Maggie was doing.
