6 yr old Havenese

I hope someone might be able to help us. Our 6 yr old Havanese has started pacing in her crate at night. She has never done this before and we have tried several things, but nothing seems to work. She goes in as usual before bedtime, but shortly after she begins pacing. We feel so sorry for her, any help would be appreciated.

How long has she been doing this? Could she not be feeling well?

Same questions here? Do you mean pacing in her crate or expen.?

This is probably not the problem, but we have dog that loved her kennel and then all of a sudden she did not like it. We figured out she had a bladder infection and had gone to the bathroom in her kennel and we did not know.
But I would definitely go to the vet.

She has been doing this for the last couple of weeks. A few days ago, I cleaned all of the bedding inside her crate, but it doesn't seem to have made a difference.

It is her crate (not expen) and we have never had any trouble until now. When she was a puppy she had separation anxiety, but that has long since passed. She eagerly enters to get her nightly treat, but once the lights are out she paces back and forth in front (where the door is). We have gotten up to let her go potty, but once back in her crate, she starts pacing again.

We lost her sister in May (cancer) and added a new puppy to our home the end of July, but nothing has changed since that time.

I will make an appt. with our vet and take in a urine sample just to rule out a kidney infection.

Thank you so much for your replies.

Yeah I would too. Whenever something like that starts sort of out of the blue, you have to maybe wonder something physical. Keep us posted.
