sleeping-cat-and-dogA twitching cat or dog that is  dreaming about chasing a rabbit in their sleep is a common sight if you’re a pet owner. Like children, our pets dream, talk in their sleep and even wet their beds. They can also have more serious sleep disorders. Narcolepsy is disease that causes sudden, excessive sleepiness. Researchers have isolated the narcolepsy gene in Doberman Pinschers and Labrador Retrievers. Sleep Apnea often affects Bull dogs and Persian cats. Symptoms include loud snoring and/or interrupted breathing and gasping during sleep.  If these conditions are left untreated, the consequences can be serious. See your veterinarian if you suspect problems. Do not attempt to administer any kind of pet medication on your own. Your vet will make the proper diagnosis and insure sweet dreams for your pet.
