Hello. I have a 6.5 yr old Mastiff (Gracie) who has been acting very weird for the past week. I had her at the vets a few weeks ago for her yearly wellness visit and she was great. Lately, she has been acting off. There are times she is distant and others when she will be under my feet. She will sit in front of me and cry at times. She seems anxious and I will find her in places of the house she never went to. She stood on stairs for 30 min instead of coming to bed ( the spoiled girl sleeps with my husband and I) when normally we race to bed to claim our spots. She also charges my husband when he opens fridge or pantry in hopes of a goody..but not as of lately. She goes for (3) 20 min walks a day and has been eating her dinners/eliminating normal. I checked her ears, teeth, paws, etc.for injuries and found nothing. I didn't know if we should go back to vet or if this is a weird behavior thing? She is not acting like herself. Any advice is appreciated!

If this isn't normal normal behavior I would say it's a reaction to the vaccines. Granted she is healthy otherwise of course. 

I would report her actions to the vet (who will probable tell you to wait it out or come in for testing) at least to get the information to them and recorded in her files. 

You could run thyroid and a cbc blood test to check as well to see possible hidden medical problems if you felt it necessary, or if it doesn't subside, or gets worse or just to make you feel better.  

I would also file a side effect complaint. (first link below if you opt to do that) 

I only vaccinate for rabies every 3 years and I wont vaccinate a senior dog anymore. I only do rabies due to law. Duration of immunity studies show life long protection from puppy core vaccines given after 8 weeks old. And studies show that boosters do not add protection.

There is allot of information on these pages of this website.

There is an herb or homeopathic remedy for after vaccines. I will try to locate it for you.

I found the information. 
http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/homeopathic-treatment-vaccine-reactions/

If your in a situation that you must vaccinate then also consider treating before and after next time.

Remember the vaccinations have been revised to every 3 years although they can have life long immunity. You could ask if a titer could be used in place of vaccinations. 

I would check Whole Foods, or a local health store for 
  • Thuja, 
  • I do not know what brands or anything like that. Generally it's administer a couple drops at a time.

Is she doing any better yet? Find any answers?

Makes me wonder if... something has scared her when you weren't around, or if she's having issues with her sight...

Hi everyone! I have an update. We went to vet on Friday. She had stiffness and pain in her neck and a mild ear infection. Gracie was prescribed pain pills, anti-inflammatory and a muscle relaxer. She is doing great and back to jumping on the bed. Thank you everyone for your concern and responses.

Ahh, yes... ear infections will do that!  So glad you've found some answers and she's on her way back to normal. LOL!
