Okay, I have the most bizarre question to ask. We have a dog (well, actually we have three), around 14 years of age, who has had issues with fleas/skin allergies. We have her on Frontline and lately have been giving her Benadryl when she seems most agitated. Last night I was reading on the couch before going to bed and she about drove me completely nuts! Pacing back and forth around the house, scratching and licking and scratching and licking. Whining and panting and getting up and down. Good gracious, she made me crazy. Today she was fine. Until a few minutes ago when she started the insanity again. Is it possible for a dog to have insomnia? And are these the symptoms? Yes, we should take her to the vet, spend a fortune on her and then realize her upkeep will cost more than I spend on groceries. So I thought I’d try here first. She really is a sweet dog, with cataracts and mostly deaf. She kinda has attachment problems because she follows me around the house like I’m going to leave her. Everywhere I step she is under my feet. Yet I love her and want her to feel better. Or at least not drive me crazy when my insomnia is in full force 🙂 Any suggestions?
