Since Bonfire night, which extended over a period of ten days, during which time we had loud bangs and whizzers every evening up until midnight, my dog has had what I can only call are fits.
She is a seven year old springer cross labrador and a house pet, she is also very noise sensitive, by that I mean when the adverts come on TV and are louder than the normal programme, she will go upstairs and lay in her bed on the landing.
However this evening she was stretched out on her bed when suddenly she started to whine very loudly as if in pain and when I looked at her she was stretched straight out rigid with her tongue out and whilst whining appeared to be gasping for air.
I put my arms around her and rubbed her and spoke to her to try and assure her that all was OK but she took a minute or two to get back to normal and then she just laid in her bed wagging her tail.
I have been away for a few weeks recently and my wife tells me that she has acted like this on more than one accassion since bonfire night and she put it down to stress from the noise of fireworks.
Apart from me being away for those few days her life style has not altered, her food and exercise has been the same as every other day.
Has anybody else come across these symptons with their dog and what was the cure.
I am worried that it may be something serious that if not treated may lead to her demise.
