The onbly things that jump to mind are nesting, which I guess you can rule out? and boredom....could it be either?

Has she had her teeth checked?

She had a vets check over in july last year,would a tooth problem make her do this.

July was a VERY long time ago. Yes, the pain of tooth problems could make her do that, as could pain somewhere else in her body.

I'm making the presuming she isn't vaccinated? Or at least, if she hasn't been seen by a vet since July, that her Myxo isn't covering her, so maybe that could be discussed with the vet at the same appointment (depending on what they find).

Myxo is generally done every 6 months, and VHD annually.
