Normal signs of aging?
I'm asking these questions for a friend of mine with 13 year old retriever mix.
First off, they discovered what has been diagnosed as a fatty cyst by her kidneys. The vet stuck a needle in it a oily clear substance came out. They didn't actually run tests but said it was harmless based on that. Should they insist on running test to confirm?
She does this teeth chattering and slamming her jaw shut over and over until you snap her out of it.
She also sometimes just stands and stares until you snap her out of it.
Lastly she sometimes growls and barks when people she knows come in the house, like she doesn't recognize them. You can snap her out of it too.
Please let me know what you think might be going on and what they can do to help her.
