Kinda going out on a limb here before I take her to the vet, cause there's a vet shortage in my town (small-ish town in alaska) so she wouldn't be able to be seen for 3-4 weeks at least. Unless I shelled out a bunch of money for the emergency vet. A little background, we live in an apartment under my moms house, and we moved in here in December, so lots of noise comes from upstairs. Anyways, my dog is a chocolate lab, she turns 11 in January, super chill dog but yesterday she started acting really weird. I came home from work and she was attached to my hip (not entirely out of the ordinary) but when she was laying next to me on the couch she started tremoring and shaking, almost like she was scared? Or in pain? Which is VERY unusual for her. And then she started drooling profusely, panting and was running out the door anytime it was cracked open, and was refusing to come inside. She'd lay on the porch and refuse to go in. Which is very weird for her. I played with her in the yard for a while, thinking she just wanted that, but all day and night, any chance she got she darted outside (which she doesn't leave the yard so I wasn't worried about her running rampant). She was also a bit hesitant to eat dinner, which is odd for a lab, especially mine. And she chowed down on a ton of grass. So, any thoughts? Stomach ache? Should I try to get her in sooner for the vet? Or did the upstairs neighbors freak her out? We did give her some cbd treats, (she usually only takes the pain one) one for anxiety and one for pain and it did help her tremoring, but none of the other behaviors.
