10 year old miniature schnauzer acting odd

by Jeannine

I am wondering if this is normal sign of old age or needs to go see the vet. Almost every night between 2 and 4AM she gets up scratches/digs the floor, walls and couches. She has always digged into the couch/pillow, etc thru her life to find a spot and sleep. Now it's for 20+ minutes at all time and loud. Sometimes gets on my pillow and hits my face and just looks at me. Any advice is appreciated

Very strange behaviour. It sounds like it could be psychological?
Probably hard for a vet to find, but it may be that she has had a mini stroke or just that her behaviour has changed.
She would not want to hit you on purpose, so her mind is possibly affected. Any other signs?
In any case,, I would video her on your mobile phone when she does it and go and see the vet.
Good luck.
