At night, my 6 year old, female redbone is very restless,

Customer Question

At night, my 6 year old, female redbone is very restless, pants and has heavy breathing. I have tried Benadryl and last night Melatonin. She has a lot of gas and jumps off the couch because she is afraid she might poop. This has been getting worse over the past year after one of our dogs died in the house.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Reba
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Reba?
Customer: She is overweight.

Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

And she only acts like this at night?

Has there been any thing new in the home?

Is she crate trained?

Have you had any changes in her food, treats, etc?
