Question by Amarie: 8 year old female dog acting odd?
“Molly” was in heat last week but the past 3 days “Molly” has been acting strange. She hides a lot, does not come when called, she ‘slinks’ around the house like she is being sneaky and acts scared to death of everything. Today I actually caught her eating bagged dog food. I know that doesnt sound odd but she has always refused to eat bagged food. I also saw her eating grass a few weeks ago. Someone told me that is a sign of worms so we gave her worm medicine. “Molly” has always tried to be the center of attention but now she doesnt want to be near anyone. It took me 30 minutes to find her hiding under the dresser today. I thought at first she was jealous of the new dog but she was pretty much raised on a farm around lots of animals so that shouldnt be it. She’s never acted this way before from being in heat. Do you think that maybe she is just getting old? Thanks!
Well, I guess I should have said she has been around other dogs her whole life so I dont think it is a jealously issue.
We treated her for worms because at the time she had been around puppies that DID have worms.
Yes, it is possible that she could be pregnant. I am hoping not but it is possible because we let her out to go potty yesterday and couldnt find her for a while.
We’ve had the other dog almost 2 months now but we also have 3 other dogs and “Molly” didnt act this way when we got them. She has always been the more aggressive one out of the bunch.
