Have you guys noticed an increase in symptoms on rainy, humid days? Blondie has been so fine but the last two days it's been raining and wet and she has been sratching a lot more then usual and I just can tell shes not too happy also a little yelp here an there out of the blue (which she never does)

I have an old injury in my leg that is painful when there are sudden drops in barometric pressure. I could see how SM dogs could be similarly affected.

Yes! Changes in pressure can affect SM dogs or at least Ella. I call her my own personal weather forecaster. I know it is going to rain by how she acts. Her neurologist told me I can give her extra gabapentin if she needs it because she can get worse. One friend told me she wanted to move to Arizona where there was no humidity etc. (but was joking).

I know I cut my finger a long time ago and even though it healed it will throb sometimes when it is about to rain. So pray for better weather and snuggle with Blondie! Take care and I hope you are well

Definitely, with changes in air pressure. Canine barometers.
