Default puppy pacing whimpering antsy

hi

im not sure what is up with my puppy. shes 12 weeks old and about an hour ago, started walking around the house whimpering. starts panting sometimes..

i thought maybe she had to go outside, so i took her out, she peed and pooped. but when brought her back in she started doing it again.

i followed her around thinking maybe she'd lead me to the problem or something, but she just kinda went around the house searching and looking around at everything. basically like something wasnt quite right.

when she lays down she just whimpers.

shes just fallen asleep now, but i thought id make a post and see what you guys thought. im thinking if she is in pain she wouldnt fall asleep?

i did a google search, and most things say something about them being scared, but nothing is different about tonight then any other night. no noises or anything..

other pages talk about bloating. are puppies able to bloat too? the bloating pages showed signs of what to look for, but she doesnt seem to have any of those.

That does sound like symptoms of pain. Was everything ok with her poop?

we have been going through bouts of diarrhea with her, the vet told us to come in if it continued today, but this morning and afternoon it was ok. figuring it was ok now, so we didnt go. then just this last one it was a little more runny.

shes never acted like this before though.

I'm not a vet...but it sounds like it could be an intestinal parasite? Such as roundworm. I'd go in to see the vet and take a stool sample with you.

Combined with this information I'd say definite intestinal pain. This is the behavior dogs exhibit when they have bloat, although I've never heard of a puppy getting bloat.

Is she still sleeping? Can you feel her abdomen and see if it's distended at all?

shes jsut falling asleep now again, but i felt her tummy area i guess it is... below her rib area (the spot with no fur yet). it didnt really feel any different then usual. though im not sure what it would feel like if it was distended?? its still quishy, nothing really hard feeling. looks the same size as usual.

i tried calling the emergency clinic( its 9:30pm here). they told me if it keeps up then to call them back, but i mean shes sleeping, how am i to tell if its keeping up?

It would feel fatter and tighter. If she's sleeping then she's feeling ok enough to sleep so that's good. It could just be gas build up. That's pretty uncomfortable.

I think if she continues to sleep then she's ok but if she wakes up and is uncomfortable again then I would consider taking her into the E-vet.

well i just woke her up to see if she would start whimpering again, and took her outside again just in case. she only peed and ran back in. but shes playing her her toys now and seems to be more normal... no whimpering or pacing.

tho its only been a short while so far, so wont get my hopes up yet!
so worried though

the only time ive seen a dog like this was with my last dog, but she would only do it when there was thunder or fireworks or something loud. so it was obvious what the problem was.

this time there were no noises. i read a bunch of sites talking about how dogs can detect earth quakes, and get like this. im not sure how much i believe that though. until i see it actually happen ill stay skeptical.

however apparently there have been some earth quakes along the west coast (where we live) the last 3 days. (cue eary music).

It sounds like she's due for her second round of booster shots, so I'd go in to see your regular vet tomorrow. Tell them about your concerns and bring in a stool sample. It sounds like an intestinal issue IMO. But, they'd be able to give you a better synopsis.
