Maybe there is something in/around the house that you can't hear? Some super-high frequency? But how strange that she's getting cranky with Cooper. That doesn't seem to fit (unless it's because she's just so stressed out).

I'm so sorry that Molly is still having problems. The Thundershirt might be worth a try. It does help Heidi when she is feeling afraid/nervous. I hope you can get to the bottom of this soon. hugging

I am so sorry bianca.

Floating in my head...mental issues, infection issues, adrenal issues, heart issues, most of that would be a wild goose chase frown

So frustrating and feeling helpless!

When Skye was having problems she got very cranky with Buddy, even acting like she had to guard her food from him. He has never rushed her bowl, but could not even walk nearby while she ate.

I think they get to the point where they are so stressed and confused they don't really know what is good and what is bad. It brings tears to your eyes to have a 65 pound dog trying to curl up on your lap while they are shaking like a leaf.

It is interesting that Molly calms when the TV is on - Skye began to want total quiet around her.

This is so scary - I hope their is not something neurological going on that the cholodin won't help. Will she drink chamomile tea? That is also a calmer if she will do that. (If she won't, perhaps you should sit down and have a cup. You must be so scared for her.)

Thank you all hugging

I think the having a go at Cooper is redirection, he is in the way...

I really have no idea but today she is going all Cujo like at passing birds, or birds way over on the lawn. Starting to froth at thr mouth. Freaky frown

Thank you so much for all the thoughts and ideas. I do have some chamomile tea here (read it is good to spray on my seedlings!) so I will go and make some strong tea now so it will be cold for in the morning. It has got to be worth a try thank you Bonnie hugging

This morning when she was busting to get into the bedroom, I thought bugger Brad and let her go in there. I assumed she would try and hide under the bed byt she just lay down on the floor.

I honestly don't think this will help, but when Kelly was about 9 or 10 he started acting screwy at meal time ... I'd put down his bowl and he'd go over to it, maybe take a bite or two, maybe not, then suddenly run into the bathroom, jump in the tub and just sit there ... this happened night after night ... I called it "seeing ghosts". I finally resolved the problem by feeding the Hooligans outside (rain or shine) until he passed away a few years later. The only thing I could think of was that he was having problems with his eyesight ... he was going blind, forget what was wrong with them. Other than this he passed every test his vet could think of as to why he suddenly started acting so weird.

Bianca hugging

The only thing that I can suggest is to start a log of her behavior, with day, day time, weather conditions, medications incl flea and tick prevs given, place of behavior, description of behavior, food and supplements eaten that day, activities on that day, potential stressors at the time (situational or long term such as Cooper's health). Using your own thread here, you can also reconstruct some of the behaviors so far. And, if possible, film as much of it as you can. How long after you moved to your new home did it start?

This would be information a specialist on OCD and seizure related disorders might need. It'd be better to ask such a specialist now to make sure the log covers the information they need (the above list of factors is just a thought by me, not based on information obtained by such a specialist). Will send you pm.

I so wish for you that you and yours will get a break hugging

I suppose foaming at the mouth could be from stress, but my uninformed gut reaction is that sounds like a physical ailment, maybe neurological.

I believe Sarah is right whatever is going on. A detailed diary will be very helpful for a vet.

I wish good thoughts would help you all, then everything would be fine.

This is concerning, there is something we are missing.

I might try an anti-acid, like pepcid, but I am more concerned, as I know you are.

A diary is a great idea. I don't like saying it but this is sounding more and more like something neurological. Hang in there, Bianca. hugging
