I am writing this hoping, praying, for any advice if anyone has had this problem.
Spencer is our 14 year old beagle. I have had him since he was a puppy. In the last year he hasn’t been sleeping very well. It used to be he would wake me up in the middle of the night to take him out and I did. Once was fine, even twice was ok, but we are now at the point where he barely sleeps.
I have taken him to the vet and his blood work is fine, but his vision isn’t as good as it used to be. We put night lights all around for him about 6 months ago and that helped initially, but now it is bad again. The medication the vets have tried to calm anxiety, etc haven’t helped at all. Does anyone know of any other homeopathic options or anything at all that has helped? I’m more exhausted these days than when I had a new born baby.
He is still a happy dog though. He is happy to see us. He is very happy to eat. He is still happy to go for a walk, so he isn’t suffering, but we are. It is also important for him to get sleep too though. I have tried keeping him awake most of the day and that doesn’t help at all either.
I’m open ears. Has anyone had this experience with a dog?
