I have a soon-to-be 10-yr.-old male, neutered Golden Retriever named Gus. He is a gentle, EXTREMELY well behaved dog in every way until there is either thunder or a popping noise (gun ranges nearby) of any kind. I try to be with him at these times, but it isn't always easy to predict when these incidents occur--especially the gun shots. I have replaced 5 doors/door frames at this point and am about ready to scream.
Gus has been on Clomicalm now for about a month, with Xanax (Alprazolam?) as needed as well. He is becoming nauseous from either one, or both, of these medications and is waking me in the middle of the night to go out and eat grass, etc. to calm his stomach. I'm at my wits end here and have ordered Anxietrex to see if that will alleviate the nausea and still take care of the anxiety, even a little bit.
I have a question or two, if you don't mind. First, does the Anxietrex have to be in Gus' system for a month or so before results can be seen? Secondly, I think I'm supposed to titrate him off of the Clomicalm if the Anxietrex works, is that right? Shouldn't take him off cold turkey, from what I remember from my Florida vet. I have a vet here I can ask these questions as well, but thought I'd start with asking you.
Thank you so much.
