Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am so sorry to hear about your issue with your Visla. It sounds as if she could be experiencing some night waking/night anxiety issues we can see in older dogs. I am going attach an article here that discusses this problem in more detail: http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?P=A&S=0&C=0&A=3189
We can also see dogs who are suffering from pain show discomfort at night and not during the day, so I would recommend you bring your visla in to your vet to check for signs of arthritis. If none are evident, then they can discuss potentially starting you dog on either nutraceutical supplements or prescription anti anxiety type medications to help her rest at night. Please look over the article I linked to and let me know if you have any questions!
