Hello Everyone, We are wondering if anyone has ever experienced a type of "panic or anxiety" attack with their Havanese. Our pup is 6-1/2 years olds and about 9 months ago, started having what we would describe as "panic attacks." She pants, shakes, paces, can't stay still or lay down, and is restless and barking.
We cannot associate these with anything in particular. She is rarely, if ever apart from us, since one of us is retired and at home at all times. She goes with us everywhere possible. She has not has any new food or medicine. We looked at some of the medical reasons, in general, listed for dogs but this does not seem to make sense either. Why? Her last attack was in late February and then she did not have another one until this Saturday 9/15 and again Sunday 9/16? As far as we can tell, there is nothing different in our routine, food, etc. Her last vet check-up was in July and all appeared well and healthy.
Has anyone else ever experienced this type of event with their Havanese? If so, what was the cause and how did you treat it? We simply want to ensure she is healthy and happy.
Thank you, in advance, for any advice or help you can provide.
PS -- I apologize if this question gets posted twice but I do not see my first one so believe it was lost to cyberspace.
