Q. My husky is 14 yrs old and the last 2 weeks he started being very anxious at nighttime , racing and panting. During the day he is much better. What is
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. It could be that he is senile and shows some cognitive dysfunction or disorder. Try leaving a night light on and maybe the radio on a low volume. If that does not help, then take him to a vet who can prescribe a drug called Selegiline which often alleviates the problem. Of course there are other conditions that can be ruled out by your vet.
