I have a 9 year old Beagle Mix that has had problems with his back/hips in the past. He has had multiple episodes of tensing up and not being able to move until we calm him down and it passes. I believed those may be mild seizures but a couple months ago we thought he injured his back again because he was stiff and couldn’t jump, etc,..for a week. We took him to the vet and got muscle relaxers and pain killers but for the first time he actually started howling/crying out like he was in pain. His blood work is normal and then he was fine again. He has been fine for awhile. He has been playing and acting normal. He had three episodes last night alone. He wakes up and comes straight to us like he is scared and then just starts crying and howling. We basically just have to comfort him until it passes. I thought maybe he was having muscle spasms and it was freaking him out? We only have muscle relaxers but I hate to pump him with pills. I hate not knowing what is wrong. The vet said the last time he was having these episodes nightly that it could be mild seizures but it just doesn’t fit the symptoms. Now he is having trouble just relaxing and laying down. He keeps wandering like he can’t get comfortable. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I just want him to feel better!
