Love you all and thank you for being there and trying to help. Anything you can throw into the discussion is helpful.
Jasmine has both arthritis and IBS. Was treated with stem cells for the arthritis, plus antioxidants, plus omega 3, plus glucosamine supplement, plus MSM, plus catrophene injections. Also the pain meds text was inconclusive. Thinking this pain isn't the cause. The IBS could, maybe in combination with some gas, acidity or other stuff.
Yes, kept hoping that it was just some animal she smelled or heard outside. But then there can be skunk stink all over the neighborhood and it will get no reaction.
I think she looks way too agitated for that to be a reason. It doesn't resemble at all what she's like when she gets a whiff of something interesting. Also she'll keep her head low, her eyes get all bulgy - to me that spells high distress. Also made a video of the episode for the vet and he agrees that something more serious than an animal smell/sound is going on.
Btw, if you have the means, check into the VetStem for the arthritis. It really seems miraculous.
