Elderly dog’s nightly restlessness
Posted By tdomf_d6e07 On September 16, 2012 @ 5:02 PM In Ask the Vet | 1 Comment
My 16 year old German Shepherd mixed dog is very restless at night. She has DM, but is able to still get around, although she does have trouble getting up on her own at times. I’m up with her several times during the night and she won’t settle down sometimes until after 5 a.m. (it’s 2:00 a.m. and she is pacing and stumbling around.) I have tried giving her benadryl, but it doesn’t seem to work. Two questions – what’s going on and what can I do for her so that we can both sleep at night? Thank you!
