Okay, it's really late but i was just woken up by my dog. I was fast asleep and then I hear my dog barking at the foot of my bed. I try to coax her back up on the bed, thinking she just heard the dog downstairs and is on the offense. she jumps back up on the bed and starts doing this think like she's ducking from something. She tries to get under the covers and does it again, and then tries to get out of the covers while still doing it. I get up, turn on the lights, and she's still ducking down, like in a ticking manner. I turn on the lights because it almost seems like she's freaked out by a shadow or something,and she continues to do it.

She seems perfectly fine right now, but it really upset me. She has no history of seizures, no history of any medical problem. She's 3 and a half years old. Any idea?

I managed to catch video of it. Please help!

thanks for your concern. I'm glad it wasn't a seizure. I was afraid it would escalate to that, and i stayed up all night. I really think it's anxiety. I went to work for like 45 mins today and was too worried and came home. I noticed she scratched her ears a lot and licked her paws a lot....and she was VERY happy to see me. I've tried keeping her occupied all day and she seems a lot better.

yeah violet has seizures and this wasn't it. like sportma2 said, they lose control and when violet has them she does a swimming motion like she's paddling, then when it's over she pants really bad and drinks a lot of water. it looks to me that your babe was just scared or probably did have a muscle spasm. Violet's done that before where she'll be laying on one leg weird and she'll jump up and start acting all weird (and I've gotten scared it was another seizure myself) but she'll literally just walk it out or stand there and sorta favor it, but she'll go back to bed. All you can really do it watch out for seizures, and while I don't think this was one, you can call your vet and explain or just see if it happens again. you can always just make a note of the date and what happened. we had to log violet's seizures since she's not on meds to see if we ever need to put her on them.

Hope this helped!
