Dear Pets.ca

I have a new Dalmatian puppy (3 months old) She is extremely active and always wants to play. This is fine with us, and we take her for hour-long walks at least twice a day. The problem is at night. She seems to be up most of the night running around the house, chasing socks, ripping clothing, and even barking a bit at the window. This wakes us up and makes us tired in the mornings.

Is there some kind of natural sedative (not too strong) we can give her before bedtime? Or do you have any suggestions?

Sincerely,

Emile

Answer:


Emile,

What we have here are signs of puppy teething. At 3 months of age, puppy molars start to erupt. This can cause pain, discomfort and aggressive reactions, especially during the night.

A homeopathic remedy called CAMILIA, sold by Boiron, works wonders for teething. Give it at bed time or as needed. You should find that product at the drugstore.
If you can't find it, replace with: Belladonna 5CH, + Chamomilla 9CH and + Ferrum Phos 5 CH, 3 granules of each at night or as needed.
