Monte is not acting quite right.....I think
Hello all. Long time browser first time poster. My chihuahua, Monte has not been acting right today. I came home from work and he seemed fine, he was jumping on me, running around and playing like normal. We went outside and for a little walk around the yard as we usually do and he seemed fine. He went to the bathroom and everything looked good. We came in for a while and I was going to leave and run an errand and just as I was ready to walk out the door he came walking up to me with his tail tucked between his legs and his head down and laid down next to me. I decided not to go and stay with him. He acted that way for a while. He did go and eat some food and drank some water. His grandpa came over and he showed his usual excitement to see him but it was brief and then he came by me again in the same tail down, head down and ears backed demeanor and laid down again. I thought he was going to vomit but he hasn't. When mommy came home he seemed absolutely fine. He was crying for her and jumping up and down on her like normal. She played with him for a while and he seemed fine, he was running around just like his old self. She checked him over real well just pressing to see if anything obviously bothered him and he seemed ok. That was a few hours ago and since he did the tail down, head down ears back walk int the bedroom and laid down. My wife thinks I am being overly catious, which I may be, but I just want to err on the side of caution. I called the vet and they said the best thing to do is keep an eye on him and if I think he's not getting better to bring him in. Hes eating some and drinking and has gone to the bathroom just fine. Do I have anything to worry about or am I being a hypochondriac? Have you ever experienced this type of behavior? By the way Monte is almost 4 years old and has always had good checkups. Thanks for any help or advice you can give.......Oh, one other thing I want to add: My wife is currently in the middle of a kitchen renovation project. She has pulled all the wallpaper and taken everything off the walls and it looks totally different than it did two days ago. She thinks maybe this has him a little scared. Thoughts?
