Whats wrong with my dog, keeps walking around house!

All of a sudden my dog who is old can't sit still she keeps walking constantly all over the house. All you hear are her nails clicking constantly. I'm at the computer now & she came in & laid down by me. Just keeps going from room to room. What could be wrong? Is she loosing it or could it be something wrong?

my dog won't stop walking.
Have you ever found out what this was? My 8 year old Daschund started doing the same thing yesterday. I'm seeing people saying things like - Bloating? - Stomach twisted? - Had a seizure?
What did you find?

One of my old dogs did this for a while towards the end of his life. He was getting Dementia / Alzheimer's. Yes, dogs can get it, too. As he got older & older, the list of symptoms increased. If I remember correctly, it started about the time he was 9.

Dementia
That's so sad. I have a 14 year pit bull and he's been running around the house all the time several times, which is not normal for him. He also gets up goes to his food plate, smells the food and runs back to his bed. He does this at least twenty times a day, which again is not something he did before. Does this mean he's possibly got dementia? Did the Doctor tell you it was Demential?

If this happens again, have your vet run some blood work to check for elevated liver enzymes. Our dog recently went through the same thing and I believe it might have had to do with hepatic encephalopathy. Due to her age, we thought it was something age related at first. Liver problems are common as they age.
