Mellow Melatonin May Calm Restlessness in Senor Dogs and Help Them Sleep
Senior dog dementia makes dogs anxious, and often leads to wandering, circling and sleepless nights for dogs and their owners. Melatonin supplements can help to foster a sense of calm without the grogginess caused by many conventional drugs. Murphy hasn’t experienced any of these symptoms, so this supplement isn’t included in his current cocktail.
Melatonin is a natural supplement that can reduce relentlessness in dogs with dementia and help to improve their sleep cycles.
Senior dogs with dementia can suffer from disturbances in their sleep-wake cycles that may cause them to sleep more during the day and remain awake, disoriented, and agitated during the night. Agitation at night may take the form of vocalizing, circling, barking or panting, making it difficult for everyone in the household.
