Short version: Lady is 2 yr boxer and just stands. Doesn't want to jump onto furniture or go up/down stairs or even sit or lay down to relax. No body wiggling or usual happy behavior
Im not sure if this is health related but I'm at a loss on what to do. I came home from a late meeting yesterday and let the dogs out and took the baby upstairs to put to bed. I came back down and let the dogs in and Lady started to just stand next to me. She would follow me around and just stand. It was almost like she was shivering lightly too. She was like that for a few hours and would not sit or lay down. I invited her onto the couch with me and she was hesitant but finally got up, but just stood on the couch then finally leaned against the back and stood there and just rested her head on the armrest pillow. She was hesitant to go up the stairs too. I knew I couldn't sleep so I took her to the doggie ER last night and the vet felt her belly spine, legs, good heartrate, breathing, anal glands. She started wiggling and jumping with excitement and acting her normal self. We get home and go upstairs to her crate and go to bed.
This morning - bam same activity. I let her out of her crate and she just stood at the top of the stairs not wanting to come down. I coax her and let her go outside - she urinated then just stood there in place. I sat outside and she just came over and stood next to me. She hasnt ate breakfast and hasn't drank anything since last night. She stood from 8 am to 10am when I got her to go upstairs and after 15 minutes she finally laid down on the blanket by my bed and we took a nap (late night at the doggie ER!!). BTW she ALWAYS jumps on my bed to nap with me but she refused
About an hour later we were up, she has been standing from 11 to 2 when she finally laid down on her dog bed to sleep after trying to lay once before, slightly bending at the leg then standing.
The only symptom seems to be refusal to sit or lay down or jump and not eat/drink?! I got her to eat a scooby snack and I think she had some cracker my baby gave her.
I have an appointment in 1 hour at my regular vet but I'm not sure what they can tell me if theres no other symptoms and I'm hoping she won't act fine when she gets there like she did last night!! Something isn't right though... I just know it. Im a sahm so I know her behavior and she's either on (wiggly happy) or off (laying down chillin), not this mellow refusal to relax. Im so worried!
