View Full Version : Dylan acting weird.

19th August 2009, 02:14 AM
Something has really spooked him and it's scaring me. He back snorted and this does usually frighten him and he came running. I did what I usually do to fix this, I gently covered his nose while tipping it down for 2 seconds, that fixed it. Then he wouldn't leave my side, really close to me, if I stand still he sits on my feet. I picked him up and he looked into space a bit stressed looking. I used Tellington Touch on his ear which usually has him asleep in a minute and that seemed to calm him. I'm taking him to bed now, he talking to the coffee table, now he's barking. :confused: I'm wondering if he's seeing things.

panic over, he had an upset tummy. one wet dog after a washed bum, wrapped up in a towel on my lap. i think it was the pedigree dental stick, i can smell it. once he's dry i'll give him some pro-kolin. he's so tired.

that really frightened me, i thought he was going to have a screaming fit. :(

I am glad you know what it was ... it's late there ... must have been really concerning. Lucky and Sparks both had their own tummy issues last week ... I hate those! I hope that Dylan is feeling better & back to his old self in no time! :)

I'm glad you found out what was wrong Pauline. Poor Dylan, he must have been feeling a bit ropey. Everything always seems so much worse in the middle of the night doesn't it. Hope his tummy is ok today.

Thanks everyone, I went out with a torch after and it wasn't really the runs, it must have been a bit soft to get some on his coat though. I think he must have had a tummy ache.

He asked to sleep in the crate so I let him sleep on his own with the door open and i heard the pitter patter of his feet later as he came into my room and slept on the floor.

It's horrible assuming every little thing is his SM getting worse.

Glad he's feeling better. Can I ask, what is Tellington Touch ? I've never of this - sounds interesting.

Hi Claire. This is how you do an ear. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eiyQJldFXc This is on a cat but it's the best video I can find.

Here is a whole group of films about Tellington Touch. Watch to the end of the first clip to see how it's done, otherwise it just looks like a massage.

I hate those Dentastix ! If Daisy gets one, this really weird smell comes out through her entire body and she has to be washed to get rid of it, so
they've been banned in our house.
Sometimes they get spooked even when they're not ill,it can be a shadow or a noise but sometimes you'd think the house is haunted as if they see things that are not there:)
I'm glad he's feeling better though.

That looks great. I could feel myself relaxing just watching it - thanks!

I didn't think till now to look at youtube and I had been doing the ears wrong. Saying that, it worked. Here's what I do: I used what I knew about acupuncture in the ear which I've had done on myself to relieve pain and anxiety. I do gentle acupressure pinches along the front edge of the ear and he is asleep in seconds. I'll do a youtube for you later. Like she says, do it to your own ear, it's lovely. Better still, get someone else to do it!
