Spangle has had her medication increased to 100mg Gabapentin 4 x a day, 30mg of Codeine 4 x a day and one 5mg prednislone every other day.
She had been gradually getting worse over a number of weeks so she started her new regime 2 weeks ago.
Then a few days later, I took her to her groomers and had all her lovely coat cut very short as she seemed to be in some discomfort when being bathed and brushed so often after her walks.
She behaved like a puppy (she is only 23 months old!), playing non stop, jumping around, just so happy!!! This lasted about 8 days but gradually over the last few days she has become "scared of her shadow". It`s hard to describe but everything scares her. It`s like she is imagining she can see things which are not there. She suddenly jumps and runs away whilst in the middle of eating her meal or when circling in the garden just before she defecates. She is nervous of going into the kitchen and isn`t happy going into her bed in my bedroom or the one in the kitchen. She woke up at 0400 this morning and ran across the bedroom and looked scared. She has been out for 2 x 20 mins walks today but she walked behind me most of the time, not really enjoying herself.
She has refused to play at all today. I am so worried about her. She just looks unhappy and scared.
I am sorry to write so much but I just wondered if anyone had any advice? I was going to wait 24 hours and see whether things improve then maybe return to my vet.
