Customer Question
Our male Boxer-Bullie mix awakened...
Our male Boxer-Bullie mix awakened at 4:30 a.m. with a spurt of hyperactivity that has not stopped. It's now 7:30 a.m. He has, to the best of our detective work, not ingested chocolate, caffeine or nicotine. He takes two Trazedone a.m. and p.m. for separation anxiety. Although he's a spirited and energetic dog we've never seen this behavior before. He is a rescue. We've had him for one year and he is approximately 3 years old.
