Understanding Sleep Running: Puppies often exhibit movements like twitching, paddling their legs, or even whining during sleep. This occurs during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) phase of sleep, where dreams typically happen. Just like humans, dogs can dream about activities they engage in during the day, such as playing or running. Hence, Bella's sleep running is likely just a manifestation of her dreams.

Since you mentioned a spill, make sure that Bella wasn’t affected by any potentially harmful substances. If she ingested something toxic, or if the substance might irritate her skin or eyes, it’s important to clean her up properly and monitor for any signs of irritation or unusual behavior.

Please tell me more about her symptoms and I'll try to provide a helpful answer.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
