Ok this is probably nothing, but I want to put it out there with every other weird thing going on. I live in central North Carolina on Fort Bragg in military housing. My dog has lost her mind the last week or so and what I mean by that is she is so very ansy. She lays in the middle of the floor crying and barks for no reason. She paces the floor and has started "talking" just in the last week. She is also losing massive amounts of hair which she has NEVER done before. I also have an African Grey Parrot who is always happy to stay inside or on top of his cage, but the last few days he makes his way upstairs every morning to where I homeschool the kids. He never does that and we didn't even know he could climb the stairs and we have lived in this house for 3 years.

Now with all that said, I have to mention that for the last week they "army/airforce" have been flying nonstop over our house buzzing us and they have been firing artillery day and night. And I mean it sounds like it is going off in our backyard, rattles our house, and things are falling off my walls. It scared my 13 year old so bad one day he came running upstairs worried that we were being bombed. So I am wondering if maybe all this "activity" around us has my dog and possibly bird stressed out a little. There are no major fault zones around us and we are a good ways away from the New Madrid, so I don't think this could be in anyway affecting them. But I did want to put this out there and see if anyone else on the east coast is experiencing the same with their pets or if it's just isolated to my pets with all the military exercises going on. Thanks in advance. Watchdog

I think you answered your own question.... Dogs do lose hair when their stressed and their hearing is much more sensitive than ours.

I am in SE North Carolina, on the coast, and my 2 labs have refused to eat for the last 3-4 days. They typically eat 2 cups of food apiece twice a day, plus some treats. Lately, we are lucky if they eat 1 cup apiece every 2 days... And for anyone that knows labs - this in itself is unusual.

my dogs seem ok.....(northeast)

all that activity would definitely stress the pets...hair loss etc

do you normally hear all that artillery? or is it something new?

I'm in FL, and my Uncles dog hasn't done much. So maybe it's specified in the Carolina region only?

I used to have a dalmatian and we made about a 5 hour move out of where we were living. He HATED car rides but obviously there was no other way to get him to the new place...I kid you not, he had MASSIVE bald patches all over his body from just one car ride alone.

I would imagine hearing all of that is stressing your dog out quite a bit and she probably has no idea what to think so it's not at all unreasonable for her to be "talking" whimpering, cowering, and losing her hair. Strange things scare dogs. My dog has audible farts and when he farts himself awake he'll high tail it to the opposite side of the room and act like the roof is falling in

Seeing as the quake in Japan was so massive that it actually knocked the Earth of it's axis a bit, I'm not surprised that animals are acting a little jittery.Also don't forget the "Supermoon" is coming in 4 days so it could have something to do with that as well.

P.S.
Have you asked anyone at the base what was going with all the activity? (You probably wouldn't get a straight answer anyway but it's worth a shot....)

We live on the military base so it's not unusual at all to hear artillery and planes throughout the year. But this last week they have been going nonstop and they seem to have ramped up the activity by about 100%. In fact last night there were 10 soldiers injured during the artillery exercises, 8 of them Marines from Camp Leguene and 2 Navy, but they aren't giving any specific details on the news about the incident (wral.com) last I checked.

Versa you are most probably right. But I wanted to see if there were any other animals/pets acting weird in our area just because we have lived here 3 years, she has lived with us for a year and a half of that and there is always some sort of military activity going on around us, be it artillery firing at the ranges or planes, and she has NEVER responded this way before. But this is probably the case and I am praying that they will hurry up and finish with all this because my poor dog is miserable.

I live in washington county, nc and the od animal behavior has been the same as usual.

Do you have a radon detector, for some reason base housing is typcally higher. I have lived on AF and USMC bases in Illinois, NC, HI, CA and TN. al had high levels for some coincedenc.

i have lived here for 18 mos. and the chemtrailing here is over the top. I have never lived somewhere with so much chemtrails, not even close. And I've lived many places as a military brat and former military.

I am also a military brat and been married to a soldier for over 15 years and lived at many different bases in my life. I have NEVER seen or heard so much activity. The closest was when we lived out at Fort Lewis when I was a teenager but that doesn't even compare to what I have witnessed since living here and especially in the last week or so. It's kind of unnerving especially since my hubby is deployed ATM. I do not have a detector and would not even know where to go and purchase one, but I will tell you that we cannot wait to get out of here. We have orders for Texas this summer and ready to move NOW lol. I will admit that the last month or so my migraines have gotten worse and are located to behind my right eye like sharp stabbing pain, but that could be just the pollen I guess or change in the weather.

My house can shake rattle and roll when White Sands Missile Range/Holloman starts firing off rounds, and I am on the other side of the mountains from the range. My dogs hate it, they really hate the sound of BOOOM going on day and night. It is enough to make me lose my hair!

I would attempt to walk your dog more often to see if they can grow used to the sounds and activity. As for the parrot, well who can blame him if he is not included in the schooling! They do love to be with the flock and if you are their flock, well, then they should be included.

I hope you find more peaceful times as any military activity is an activity of very high tension!

Good luck!

Another approach would be to look into a carbon monoxide detector. Just a thought that came to mind. The animals would sense that before us as well i would imagine. Good luck! Eastern NC here by cherry point usmc base.

Thanks for the input guys. I will just chalk it up to the increased military exercises this week and look into the detectors. And I will keep a watchful eye on my pets to see if things progress or change in anyway. And hoping some of the training goes back to normal levels soon or at least spaced a little further apart to give us a little reprieve lol.

Even though your dog and parrot may be used to hearing the occasional noise, just think, your child was scared and he knows about the military base. To your pets, it may be their version of the SHTF. Until you get any info on why there's been a sudden increase in exercises, I'd suggest trying anti-stress methods on your pets. Distraction techniques such as play can work. I'm in the UK, working at a vets, and we usually prescribe DAP (a product which releases pharamones similar to what pups receive from their mum) or Zylkene tablets, both aiming to help calm a dog. We typically give these out around firework season. Of course product names may differ in countries. Just some suggestions.

I hope these exercises stop soon for both you and your pets. I wonder why there's been a sudden increase?

Yea I thought about calling her vet to see if they had something I could give her to help calm her a little as I am sure they are aware of the increased activity going on. I just HATE medicating if I don't have too, animals or people. We have taken her on long walks the last few days and to the bark park to let her run around off the leash, but still didn't really help. Maybe I will call her vet in the morning just to see what they think is the best course of action. And she loves to ride in the car and adores her vet so she won't mind going in for a check up.

Oh and I have no idea why they have ramped up military exercise the last week or so. It could be just because it's warmer and the weather has been nice and it's a good opportunity to train, or it could be something that has been on their schedule for weeks or months. Who knows. I have long been done with questioning stuff like this because no matter what they ALWAYS give you a run around and never answer your question or give you answers that you KNOW are just to appease you for a little bit lol. You rarely get a straight answer from the government lol. So I just observe and come to ATS to report unusal or increased activity. But like I said, things have been normal up to about a week ago and even people on wral.com in the comments section about the injured soldiers were commenting about the increased amount of activity and report houses shaking, things falling off walls, and being scared when one of these things go off. So I am definitely NOT the only person who has noticed it, but I live within a few miles of one of these ranges so it's extremely loud and nerve racking at times.

It seems like this "radiation" is great. Your pets can perform actions that they otherwise couldnt(walk up stairs) and they can TALK? WoW!

Ill take a lil radiation for telekinesis.

I wouldn't use tablets before trying a pharamone as its like going in all guns blazing, however as you said, take her to the vets, maybe make an appointnent for a behaviour consult with your vet. It's always the safer option for a first tackle of a problem. You should be able to talk in detail about her reaction to the bangs, and the vet can offer techniques for you to try before giving out medication. Our vet normally gives tablets out when animals freak out and start harming themselves, and though I can't speak for the profession in other countries, handing out anti-stress pharamones in the UK is becoming more popular. It's like a herbal air remedy, and I've never come across ill effects. As I said, a behaviour chat is a good starting place. Good luck with her, I look forward to hearing updates, and sorry I can't offer advice on parrots, but I'm sure you can ask your vet too.

Um lol, you're just being silly. I NEVER said anything about any kind of radiation or that it was even EQ related you goof. My bird has climbed the couch before numerous times, as well as chairs, but we never thought he would take an interest in climbing the stairs. It was just odd after living here for 3 years and this being a first. And as far as my dog "talking", i didn't mean that she literally was speaking english and if she was I wouldn't be taking the time to post it on ATS. I would call the Guiness World Records and some scientific specialists. It's like a long drawn out bark or yawn that changes pitch and last for a couple of seconds, almost like a howling but not really. And she just walks up to you and starts it or does it to get your attention. So I am not implying any kind of marvelous miracle here, just that my dog has been "emotional" if you will, the last week or so and my bird has taken an interest in daring to climb our two flights of stairs.

I have two dogs, also in NC... They seem just fine.

Then again, i should mention that my house is not being buzzed by military aircraft and artillery shells/bombs are not exploding in my back yard.
