I have a 12 year old female maltese, Daisy. About 3 weeks ago, she started waking up during the night. She won’t stay in bed. I have had to sleep on the sofa with her. She went to the vet for annual visit. All blood,urine and stool samples came back ok. Dr suggested melatonin to help her sleep. It worked for about 2 nights. She has also become very clingy. She wants to be pet constantly. If I leave the room, she follows me, If I go upstairs, she’s at the bottom of the steps barking and whining. Her appetite is still pretty good. Some nights she doesn’t eat her dinner, but she’ll eat treats.She still likes to go on walks but the heat seems to bother her a bit. Any suggestions?
