Dogs are fascinating anumals

Postby hicntry » Fri Aug 31, 2018 10:44 am

A bit over a month ago I noticed a definite change of behavior in both dogs. While they have always been attached to me, they suddenly became annoyingly affectionate. So much so that I couldn't even move without both of them rushing over to me. A couple of days after I noticed the change in behavior, I developed a pain in my left side of my stomach just below the ribs. Nothing really unusual about a pain, but, this one is still there 24/7 after a month. It has progressed around the side and halfway across the back. I am pretty sure this has something to do with the behavior change I see in the dogs. I find it really cool that dogs are so tuned in so I am watching the progression in their behavior with great interest.

Ryan, don't need anything checked out. It will either go away or it won't. The dogs behavior is more interesting than what may be wrong with me. I may never have a better opportunity to observe such behavior.

Hlcountry. You realize they are using dogs in cancer screening, epilepsy and diabetes early warning right?

I agree with others. Go get checked out. It cannot hurt and your canines may be telling you more than you are in pain.

Hicntry, like his dogs, doesn’t require medical care because they all lived well until they died “of old age”

Please don’t ignore your dogs concern for your health... it just wouldn’t be the same around here without you.

Right on all accounts. Tucco is 6 and never been to a vet. Harper is 8 and was spayed but has never been to a vet since. Both had the first vaccinations and never had another one. I haven't had an antibiotic since the brain surgery at 21. Our immune systems are fully functional and expected to work. I figure what my problem is right now is shingles which isn't comfortable but not life threatening. They have drugs to counteract it but I don't want them. To each his own.

That's true until it isn't. I've walked around an old family cemetery and seen the graves of people that die from things that we don't have to die from anymore; a great uncle that died from tetanus, for example...Or appendicitis that was easily treated, but not the ensuing infection.

If you're being extremely objective that the symptoms are consistent with shingles, fine. But it sounds to me almost like a tumor somewhere.

And, you're right, they are fascinating. My Mom's dog has a torn ACL. My dog, upon seeing him for the first time in a year, went right to his knee and licked it, despite it not being inflamed and him not limping.

Most people develop a rash with shingles.......
I've had several really good dogs, but none were perfect. Neither am I, so keep that in mind!

Got a noticeable redness from the left side of the abdomen around to the left center of the back. I am not worried about it, but, it isn't the most comfortable thing. Then again, I have had kidney stones twice, once for a 9 day stretch and that was a bitch.

Your diagnosis may be correct. Different folks have different reactions at different times. Some are in such torment they wind up in the hospital while for others it's just a minor itch, if that.
