• My senior dog has started pacing and seems disoriented just for the past few days. She will act normal when she first wakes up--wagging tail, running,etc. and then tucks her tail and starts pacing. What could be the problem?

    Hi Kim,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. There can be a few different causes for the symptoms that you are describing including infection, pain, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of this behavior and the treatment that she needs after they have examined het.
