So i'm wondering if i need to be concerned or not.
Last night snoopy seemed pretty drowsy and after she woke up from a nap i went to go roll her over and scratch her tummy and she kept letting out little yelps...
so i picked her up... yelp...hm.
so i rolled her on her back and felt all over to see what was hurting... no yelp...
pick her up... yelp...
??? and since then she has been VERY drowsy...slept allll night without a peep and didn't even wanna go outside to pee this morning - just went to her crate and back to sleep...
sometimes she yelps on her own... sometimes when i touch her.
and she has a very abnormally low energy level (not that i'm really complaining but..ya know)..
does anyone have any ideas????? :S

Yes, I would definitely contact the vet. Especially if you are worried. We know our babies, and usually when we feel something is not right, it isn't.

Better be safe than sorry. Keep us updated.
Oh, poor Snoopy! Is she out in the yard where she could be hunting things? My aunt and uncle had an opossum in their back yard. Every time they'd let their dog out he'd come to the door crying. It was biting him while he was out and wanting to play with it. They finally found the opossum hiding in the yard and got rid of it. No more bites on poor Buddy's nose now.

As for soothing her, I don't know. Maybe if you wash the bites up with some warm water and put a little bit of Bacitracin ointment on them, it will help with the pain. Give her a gentle kiss on the nose from me.
I'm happy that Miss Snoopy isn't getting bitten by anything bad. Sorry though that it cost you $50 to find that out. I have used Skin So Soft many times on my dogs. I haven't needed it with Jersey yet, but used it all the time on Amber.
