hi everyone,
squealing is the best way i can describe it...she's resting, then she just opens her mouth and a high pitch noise comes out...and she goes back to resting....has anyone ever come across their dog doing this? it only started happening this year. and it's not everyday......i explained to the vet but they said she is healthy. heart is good, lungs and other organs are good...it worries me because we are air travelling soon....she is a senior so i'm just wondering

Breed and age of your senior dog?

I hope not.
That squealing symptom was the beginning of my late Border Collie's decline, and began at about 12.5 yrs old. I found it very confusing for quite some time, until she began to develop minor seizures. I started her on a CBD (human grade) regimine which made her better for about 6 months.
Hope you find the problem!

Seizures are all different. Her seizures began about 3 months after I noticed the squealing with a little shaking and had some trouble maintaining her balance. It had gotten bad enough that I made the final appointment, but after 10 days on CBD oil, she was a new dog again for about 6 months. She was my heart dog and the decision was extremely difficult.

Just because mine had the squealing and had begun decline, is no reason to believe that it is the same for your dog.
Just like people, they are all very different.

I never took her to the vet for a diagnosis since she had lived a long and good life, so I don't know what, if any tests they can do.

OK. I will check into the CBD oil...the current vets are not fans of alterntive meds, Once we reach north america, I will take her to a specialist and see what's going on. thank you.

You're welcome and this was my 1st post on the forum...CBD is not a miracle but sure worked wonders for my dog. Vets here have just been allowed (by the govt) to discuss CBD with their clients.

I hope you find it interesting.
Start at post #3 and on.

several said the same re cbd oil but my girl is currently on tramadol, which is apparently not compatible with cbd...will look into for sure.

Definitely ask the vet..if I recall, Tramadol acts on the same cannabinoid receptors that Cannabis does which would not be good at all!
Is it possible that the Tramadol makes her feel "off" (high)?
i dont know the symptoms of being high. she is on tramadol and gabapentin and both have drowsiness. but she does not sleep 16 a day that dogs supposedly sleep.

High = off her game.....
Like a human drinking a few glasses of wine and feeling a bit woozey. I GUESS a feeling like that could be upsetting for some dogs.
I have taken Tramadol for back pain, and have asked my dog's vet for it after a spay, since I am not a fan of doggie NSIDs. In humans Tramadol can become addictive..like opioids if taken too long.. Once again..the same receptors are affected

I have NO IDEA if dogs react the same way as we do, so as always; It's best to ask a vet.
