To help dogs and cats sleep easy, have them checked for external parasites like fleas and ticks, as well as bacterial or yeast infections. Both of these can cause scratching and discomfort all night which could keep you awake too if your pets sleep with you. Allergies are another form of constant itching so please check with your vet for a proper diagnosis. For dust-mite allergies which are common in pets and owners wash pet beds every week or so. If your animals sleep on your bed, enclose the box springs, mattress, and pillow in barrier covers and wash them frequently.
Senior dogs and cats can suffer from pain related problems like arthritis which can make it difficult for them to fall asleep. Pain medications and supplements can ease their discomfort. Speak to your local veterinarian or your holistic pet food distributor for advice and direction.
