In a recent lecture at the TCVM World Congress, Dr Ron Koh spoke about the frequently ignored conditioned of insomnia in pets, reports News Chief.
Have you ever shared your home with a pet insomniac? It might be hard to believe but some pets have difficulty getting a full night’s sleep, just like humans. Some pets pace all night or wake up to go out to potty five times during the night. This is definitively abnormal pet behavior. Although insomnia is not a disease, it might be a symptom of an underlying disease. In any case, it is detrimental to the health of the animals and causes cumulative stress to the pet owners.
