He is a retriever/shepherd mix, 15 yrs old. sleeps but wakes up in the middle of the night, and whimpers EVERY night. Then I go downstairs (he used to sleep upstairs but has a hard time going down in the morning) and he settles down but I have to stay on the couch. I am exhausted. He has anxiety meds from vet but doesnt seem to work. He seems fine, eats, walks, poops okay, just had an exam, and he takes Rimadyl
. Is there ANYTHING out there to make him sleep at night??? Thanks!
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Axel?
Customer: Not really, he has had a fatty tumor for like 3 years, but they do not want to remove it, so far his blood is okay, a little high but not abnormally high so I can still give him the Rimadyl meds. Other than that he seems fine.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
