Answered By

A. This can be a sign of pain, i had a patient that used to have the same symptom and it was related to severe gum and teeth pain, it resolved after the treatment was successful.

I recommend taking her to the vet for a full checkup and try to find out if there is a pain somewhere that might cause this.
