    My dog is suddenly scared & not acting himself

    My dog is suddenly wigging out scared
    Hi there. I need some help. My dog has had 2 episodes where he is totally wigging out and really scared...which is so unlike him. Buster is a beagle mix (or at least we think he is) and he will be 8 yrs old in a few months.

    His first episode started last Wednesday. He came in from outside and suddenly jumped on the couch. He knows not to jump up there without permission. When we told him to move to his "designated" spot on the couch, he didn't do it immediately. I sat next to him and he kept wanting to practically sit on top of me. Then he kept looking around like he sees something and he would keep smelling in the area towards his hinny. And he would follow me wherever I went. We went to bed and he never sleeps with us but I thought since he was so scared, I would have him lay with me but he kept trying to lay on top of me and kept smelling. Finally he went to sleep on his bed and was "normal" again. The most recent episode occurred just a couple of hours ago. He was outside briefly then he came back in and did the same thing as before, jump on the couch and when he was told to move, he wouldn't. This time he was shaking for several minutes and wanted to be by my side like a magnet. I then went to take a shower and he laid on the bath mat...then a few minutes later, he laid on the bath mat in front of the shower then after I got out, I found him hiding in the closet under my clothes....this is truly odd behavior which he has never done before especially since he doesn't like to be wet or be near a shower.

    I dont know what's wrong with him...if something spooked him or if he's going senile. Has anyone experienced this before? Please help.

    I think a vet visit is definitely in order.

    A vet can do a proper physical exam and order bloodwork/x-rays as needed to make a diagnosis.

    Does your dog have any history of seizures?

    No he doesn't have a history of seizures. I think I will need to bring him into the vet for sure. Thanks
