RESTLESS BULLDOGS

We had the lump removed and it was indeed just fatty tissue. However my little baby has returned with mood swings of note. Her 3 year old ' brother'  is paying the consequences and all of a suddent Jody is extremely restless at night. We haven' t slept for 4 nights - and our calm, peaceful Bulldog has turned into a nightmare. Any advice, please? Can we give him a sedative to calm him down? We started with a new bag of Vet' s Choice and since then he has been restless - any recent problems with Vet' s Choice reported?

Dear Esme

I do not see the connection with the lump removal, mood swings etc.. Unlikely to be the food. If it is a behavioural cause you can try a DAP diffuser for a few weeks.

Could be he' s out of his routine a bit. Get some tincture of valerian, and give him 15 or 20 drops of that half an hour before bedtime (with a tiny bit of water - use a syringe). Becalm tablets, or Calmettes, are the same thing (valerian) but cost a bit more.

These are not drugs or tranquillisers, but herbs - the dog won' t be dopey - it just encourages sleep and takes the edge off whatever' s stressing him.

As a last resort, you can also take them yourself, and let him sort himself out :-)
