My dog is whimper, rubbing his butt on the floor, and rubs his antenna near his paw. Is this adjectives one problem?
I have a (standard) American Eskimo Dog, 9 months old, and we got him only last weekend, and he was very excited when we get him home. Today, his excitement hasn't changed, but he was rubbing his butt against the floor, and rubbing his nose beside his paws, along with the occasional whimpering. Right very soon, he is sleeping, but he was sneezing a couple times. He doesn't bark, he's had adjectives his shots, he's been "fixed", and he is currently licensed in the city we got him from. Is this adjectives one problem, or is this multiple? Do we need to take him to a vet? Is this serious?
Hope this helps.
Rubbing his nose and sneezing is an indication that he has something lodged up his proboscis, it could be a blade of grass or a grass seed, it can also be caused if he is within a dusty atmosphere or if you've been spraying any aerosols.
lt would be best to transport a trip to the vets and get him checked.
I would recommend a vet check. The fact that he's rubbing his butt on the floor indicates that he has a gland problem or he have worms. While you're there, you can ask about your other worries.
You've only have him a week- did you keep him on the same food he was when he be at the shelter/place before? Sometimes an abrupt switch of food can cause a unpromising reaction, and the dog can be allergic to the food.
Switch to a corn free diet (Maxximum, Innova, Nutro Natural, etc) and see if his behaviors change. I would propose a vet visit as well to make certain its not another type of allergy.
Keep an eye on his face scratching. When I first found out that one of my dogs was food allergic he gouge his muzzle open with his dew claw from all of the scratch and itching.
Could be anything from allergies to needing his anal glands expressed, your best bet is the vet.
Hope he's feeling better soon.
