Has your Pub been acting weird? Are you worried this could be a sign your Pug is sick? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We understand it can be scary when your Pub is acting weirdly.
We’ve put together some information about what may cause a Pug to act weird and how you can help your canine companion. Let’s get started!
Signs a Pug is Acting Weird
How do you recognize a Pug is acting weird? Sometimes it’s very obvious, but other times, it may be hard to pinpoint how your fur baby’s working differently. So, here are some questions that may help you determine if your canine companion is acting weird:
- Does your Pug seem more withdrawn or quiet than normal?
- Is your Pug eating and drinking as much as normal? Have you noticed some changes in eating habits?
- Does your Pug seem to be sleeping more?
- Is your Pug going to the bathroom as much as normal? Is he having diarrhea or constipation?
Not only can these questions help you determine when your Pug is acting weird, but they can also help bring notice to symptoms you hadn’t noticed.
What Causes a Pug to Act Weird?
Here are some of the most common reasons for a Pug to act weird:
- Illness or injury
- Heat stress from hot weather
- Not getting enough sleep
- Boredom, lack of interaction
- Change in schedule
- Pent-up energy
- Guilt (for doing something he shouldn’t have)
When to Call the Vet
It can be challenging to know when it’s time to call the vet. However, if your dog is ill and/or in pain or showing other concerning symptoms, it’s definitely time to call the vet. Sooner is better than waiting, as some conditions can become more serious the longer they go on.
And if your Pug has symptoms that last longer than a couple of days, it’s also time to call the vet. The vet can figure out (in most cases) what’s causing your Pug to act weird.
The vet may need to run tests and perform an exam, and that’s OK. Once your fur baby has a diagnosis, the vet can prescribe medication and provide advice on how to help your fur baby feel better.
So, if your Pug is acting weird and you can’t figure out why, go ahead and call the vet. They have the knowledge and experience to find what’s going on and help you get your Pug to feeling like his normal, sweet, charming self again!
