I think Shar had the same issue with one of her dogs and distraction works.
She's currently lying stretched out on the couch asleep. She ate her dinner seems fine just a little off...
Has only started occurring since the pancreatitis. Tonight wasn't the first time...
Can stress set it off????
Yes, it did indeed occur with one of Shar's dogs. Freaked her out, as it would! Perhaps you could talk to her about it, as she and I and another lady (who also had experience with it, I believe) had a lengthy conversation about it, and to my knowledge she then coped with it like the trooper she is. One woman had success with giving honey because she believed her dog's episodes were brought on by low sugar. Another's dog only did it when they were being asked to do something they weren't wanting to do - so that owner naturally put stress reaction down as the trigger. That is a small example of why I honestly do feel that the triggers can be different for each dog.
Yeah, stress could set it off I'm sure, as can the onset of a disease or episode of one, such as diabetes - yet in others the set-off is completely baffling - like there isn't any. Not one that is obvious, anyway.
I would strongly suggest you talk to your usual vet about it when next you are in there. Will be interesting and informative to hear about their
take on it. Knew a few owners whose vets told them their dog really should be PTS now that it was head-bobbing. Man, talk about an over-reaction!
with Shar (don't quote me cause I can't remember fully) she went to the vet to have her dog checked over so everything else could at least be crossed off the list.
