Our dog has been on trazodone and we only give m when we all

HiOur dog has been on trazodone and we only give him when we all leave the house for church on sunday during the day. Lately with the storms and thunders Vet suggested to give him one pill in the evening - we tried and he got worse - starts scratching door to get out in the middle of the night for no reason. Should trazodone be given right before sleep or 4-5 before going to bed like we have been doing. Thanks.

My 14 year old lab suddenly stopped eating his food

Hello, my 14 year old lab suddenly stopped eating his food 3 days ago. I even tried putting rice in the food but he would pick out the rice. I just put a new bowl of food (which has always been the ONLY thing he eats,never people food) and another of rice....he did eat the rice again. He does get separation anxiety when I'm gone and I have been in and out of the house a lot more lately. Could that be why? He's acting normal as far as sleeping and walking around but I did notice his back leg sometime seems a little weak....but he continues to walk around fine.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?Customer: CharlieJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Charlie?Customer: He's always been pretty healthy ,I've had him since he was 11 weeks old. When he does get overly excited he can start to "hack and wheeze" but that stops immediately.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.

My dog last night went on a rampage and reason ate

My dog last night went on a rampage and for some reason ate a bunch of plants and weeds. She vomited last night three times. All night she was drooling and like tongue thrusting, but was breathing and her heart rate was ok. She was restless all night and wanted to continue to go outside and eat more plants. She is drinking and eating fine. I looked at her vomiting today and inside was leaves of a peonie plant, aloe vera, lavender, possibly rosemary, fern, geranium, another plant I don't know, iris leaves, foxtails. Do I need to be concerned?
