Dog acting very agitated and random
Hello, my dog is a 1.5 yo shih tzu in good health. Saturday he was a little itchy. We barely noticed. Then Saturday night he woke us up whining at my son’s bedroom door. He never sleeps with my son but he kept going to the door and then when he got in he whined at an empty extra bed in his room. In the morning he was acting very odd and sniffing the carpets in the house and walking slow on them almost as if he was scared of them. We took him to ER vet Sunday morning. They said his belly looked a bit pink so diagnosed allergic reaction. Doc gave shot of benedryl. He was okay throughout the day but still pretty whiny. Has only itches once or twice since then. Last night per doc orders we gave 12 mg of Benadryl. He was up all night whining at the door and at our kitchen table. Usually he sleeps thru night. My husband took him out and pee/poop is normal. Most of the times he took him out he didn’t go. When I took over from my husband this morning at 6 his whining continued. It was like he was trying to get away from the carpet that he’s been fine with before. He is now laying on kitchen floor (tile) and this seems to be the only way he will settle.
Heat wave in our area Saturday and Sunday. We kept him in A.C. other than to take him out for quick walks.
He was around a new and bigger dog for two minutes on Friday afternoon. That dog is vaccinated but he did scare him a bit.
His belly is less red this morning.
Help? I’m really concerned.
