Our 14 + yr old female has recently lost vision and hearing.

Hi. Our 14 + yr old female ***** ***** has recently lost vision and hearing. It appeared to happen suddenly. She had one eye removed about 8 years ago. My concern today is that she paces the floor any time she isn't sleeping. Which is approximately 16 hrs a day. While pacing she whines,pants and has head tremors. If left to long with out consoling she helps a high pitch for a few seconds. We try everything to comfort her and try to figure out what she needs.???

My dog will not sleep at night. He walks the floor sometimes for about 2-3 hours before he settles down and then when he does sleep it is only for about 1 hour and then walks the floor again. He is 17 years old. He eats well, cannot see or hear very well. We are so tired. We take the water from him before he goes to bed because he was getting us up every 1/2 hour wanting to go out.
