Why is my dog restless,pacing and acting strangly
Started a couple of nights ago,then he was fine for a night then started up again last night.
No existing conditions.
Stools are between hard and slightly gooey.
No notable swelling.
Gums are pink.
Like I stated,he seems normal and at rest when we come in from work(night shifts so home about 3 am) Then,when we go to bed he starts up with the pacing etc. However,today he did look like he had been active and messing things around while we went out today for a couple of hours.
Relist: Answer came too late.
Cognitive dysfunction syndrome seems to be what Rocky has the symptoms of. We have started him on Selgian (I think the UK version of Anaphyl or something like that) Also a natural product Zylkene administered at night with a little Melatonin. He at least sleeps through the night now (as do we thankfully)but as of yet,still hasn't stopped the pacing etc.
I assume the Selgian needs time to get into the system,is this correct? Have you used this product and seen any success?
We did try to keep him in a crate for his safety while we are at work,but he destroyed a metal cage bending it and losing 5 teeth in the process. I can't even bend the bars by hand so he obviously didn't care for this idea! Any other suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated.
