So, you got a new four-legged family member and you’ve noticed some weird things going on while your new canine friend is sleeping. Do not be alarmed.
Although these things can be an indicator that your dog is in pain or is having some other health issues in some situations, be assured that the probability is that everything is okay. Normal to the experienced dog owners and dogs themselves (unaware of the situation), some things your dog does while sleeping are just downright strange.
Here are the 9 shocking things dogs do in their sleep that stress out new dog owners.
1. Muscle Spasms
Muscle spasms during sleep are not pleasant for dogs as they’re not pleasant for humans.
When it comes to our four-legged friends, they happen because of bad dreams, and they are totally normal.
However, if they get really bad, you should consult your vet.
You should also take a moment to think did you feed your dog anything new lately, and has he or she been eating before bedtime? If the answers are “yes,” then take the food into consideration as a reason for the muscle spasms. It’s maybe what they’re eating that is causing the nightmares. If it can happen to humans, it can happen to dogs, but check with the vet to be on the safe side.
