Dog is afraid-same time every yearGelsinium, Ignatia, aconite?
I can't decide?
- afraid to go outside alone
- afraid of loud noisy but not thunderstorms
- sleeps all the time
- shakes when outside alone
- prefers hard surfaces
- sweet friendly wants to please personality
-loves to go for walks (we don't take her off property very often though)
-friendly to cat and chickens, doesn't like other dogs especially little ones
-loves people and kids
-was raw fed til a year ago, had 2 puppy needles and 1 rabies shot which was given a year ago with seemingly no issues (this behaviour has occurred every year since I can remember)
Each year this dogs personality changes in the SPRING except for 1- when we moved to the East Coast for a year. It did not happen then. We also had a 2nd dog who began to exhibit the EXACT same behaviour at the same time- he died of what we believe was leukemia a few years ago (he was raw fed, naturally reared except for 1 set of puppy shots-he was only 7)
We live on 100 secluded acres, hwy is 1 km away. There is a neighbouring pig farm and a small goat farm that gets goats each spring? No bears or big cats or anything in our woods...deer, coyotes, coons, wild turkeys, the odd wolf.
Our dog, SHE is 7, intact and we notice this EACH SPRING. It passes in the fall. She has not gone into heat yet this year. She has never been bred. I had recent bloodwork done and vaginal swab that was fine.
All of a sudden one day POOF she goes from a bounding happy energetic puppy like dog to sleeping all the time, afraid, shaking if you make her go out by herself- she runs from door to door hoping she can push one open. You can see her sitting at the door literally shaking and panting to get inside. She will put her whole weight behind the door in the hopes it wasn't shut properly. She is NOT afraid of thunderstorms OR to be left alone. She's only ever chewed 2 wooden toys of the kids.
When I raise my voice at the kids, she slinks away to the corner.
She sleeps most of the day getting up to try and get you to play once in awhile or play with the cat. If you take her outside to play she will, but when I went into the field with her the other day to pick dandelions I looked up and she was 1/2 way back to the house. She has access to water all night and spaced throughout the day when my toddler is asleep or we are out or when I take her outside. But she does drink alot considering she's not running around.
If we take her for a walk down the road she is fine.
She is afraid of loud noises- she was scared badly by a dump truck here about 4 years ago. She will run to the house if something loud like a tractor or big truck comes in the laneway.
her overall personality is that she loves people- she is a LICKER which we haven't been able to fix. She likes to lick your hand and she gets REALLY excited when people stop by and she will grab whatever she can find almost as a token for them- slipper, sock, doll, whatever is there and she wags and wags and wags! She's very quiet considering she is a 80-90 lb king shepherd- she barked more when the other dog was here, he was the 'watchdog'. Unfortunately I hear the UPS truck before she does!!! but she can tell you there is a coyote in the far field before you can spot it!!
She's hasn't been wanting up on the couch like she sometimes does- just flat in the middle of the hardwood floor when no one is around or in the corner when the house is busy (we have an 8, 5 and 17 mo old) We homeschool and are home all day, every day pretty much.
If anyone can offer some ideas, I would love to hear them. I have a couple hundred remedies in varying potencies but I don't want to just go blindly into this one.
