14 yr old male Jack Russell

by Shawn
(New Orleans, la )

My 14yr old jack Russell is now not sleeping thru the night and is very restless. He used to sleep on the sofa all night but now he wants to be in our bed, if we don't let him in he barks until we give in He is acting strange all of sudden also by chewing up the sofa throws and pillows when we leave to go to the store. Is this a sign of dementia or is he just mad.

Beloved Jack Russell
by: Anonymous

Unfortunately I submitted this question 2 1/2 years ago and it just recently got published. Our beloved Jack Russell died 2 years ago. He definitely had serious separation anxiety. He was a wonderful dog for our children to grow up with. We miss him dearly. Thanks for the response to the question though.

I'm not sure if your dog is experiencing dementia...or maybe he is trying to alert you that he is not feeling well, and he wants to be close to you as a result. You should take him to the vet and see what they have to say.

Sounds like separation disorder to me.
