Get your pet to sleep ... so you can!

Got aging pets that keep you awake at night?

Are they keeping you from getting the sleep your hormone needs? If hormone heaven for you is evasive right now thanks to four-legged loves, this episode is for you!

Dr. Ruth Says: All Dogs go to Hormone Heaven 

It’s not like you can kick them out so you can get the good night’s sleep a girl’s hormones need. Aging, sick, and anxious pets we love can be a problem. (You know Truman. So cute photobombing me in videos, right? Well at 2am trying to make the 5thor 6thattempt to put his 11-year old butt on the bed – not so cute.) 

And yet you want the best for your dog. Not long ago Truman basically – you guessed it.. went on an elimination diet- yep, he might as well have gone through the 28-Day Kickstart. Well, good news today for all of us pet lovers the doctor made a house call. 

So many of my private clients and students have pets that keep them from otherwise being great sleepers. SO this is selfishly for me… about you… as well as your pets. 

Dr. Ruth Roberts is Your Pet’s Ally. 

Dr. Ruth has supported hundreds of dogs and cats to heal and overcome health hurdles like chronic kidney disease, GI Illness, allergies, cancer and much more. Her natural approach to healing creates a gentle yet effective path for your pet to take on their journey to wellbeing. Working hand-in-hand with your family vet, Dr. Ruth will coach you to get the answers, diagnostics and results your pet needs.

You'll no longer need to worry whether your pet is getting the best treatment, because Your Pet’s Ally will explore every available option, and mentor you in choosing the perfect solution for your furry friend. 

The customized treatment plan that Dr. Ruth will create for your pet will include only therapies that will support them in healing faster and dramatically improve their quality of life, without harsh medications or unnecessary and pricey treatments.

Dr. Ruth is your pet’s ally and is also an ally to you, the pet parent. Her experience and insider’s knowledge of the veterinary industry will save you money on your pet’s healthcare, avoiding unnecessary suffering, treatments and tests, enabling you to focus on providing the care they truly need and reduce stress all around. 

My clients, students, and our Flipping 50 community members have pets. And if we’ve got them we love them. BUT we’ve also got hormones. And we need to get to hormone heaven from the hormone hell bad night’s sleep cost us.

 Questions I asked Dr. Ruth in this episode:

  • What reasons are there for dogs/cats not sleeping well?
  • How can we help pets sleep better so that we can?

Elimination diet, keto, freeze dried protein in a purchased one + real veggies

Melatonin 1.5 mg – 3 mg (small to large size pets)

Fatty acids


  • Are there things to avoid that might be recommended by others? Unhealthy options or those with negative side affects?
  • Is there an age or stage in a pet’s life when it becomes more likely they’ll have nighttime sleep issues?
  • Is there a way to prepare pets for better sleep habits? (similar to adults!)
