Since Carma Poodale's death, Scooby has had a hard time adjusting.
We have put him on an antidepressant to help him.
I will be talking to the vet about changing it because it doesn't seem to help.
They did everything together. Where you saw one, you saw the other. She was his support system. Scooby hadn't had the best life before he came to us. The stories I could tell you would break your heart. He wasn't cared for very well.
He has fears of being left behind.
I try to go to pet-friendly stores but there are times when I have to go to the grocery store or a retail store. Scooby is not a service animal. He is not allowed in stores that are not pet-friendly. I try to go when the kid or hubby are home, it helps but not enough. There are times I have to go to grab something for supper when everyone is at work. I come home to a pup that is on the verge of a breakdown.
I took him to a home and garden store last week and saw they had a jacket called Calm Coat. It is similar to another coat that is sold. The only difference is the other coat cost around $50. and this one cost around $25. I bought it in hopes that it will help with his separation anxiety and fear loud noises such as fireworks and thunderstorms.
It has helped a little bit. We are trying it out more and more to get his accustom to it. Stay tuned to see how it works and the pros and cons..
How do you deal with your pet's anxiety?
