I have been using a product called Rescue drops for our 7 year old rescue that has ALWAYS had severe separation anxiety with me. If I am gone more than overnight, she stops eating and will have bloody diahrrea, etc. and it takes days to get her balanced again. The Rescue drops do not seem potent enough. Do you think the Anxietrex is a more potent and long term solution yet gentle for her stomach?? She will need it EVERY day!!

Dear Suzann,

ANXIETREX might help your dog with separation anxiety. It can be added to the food or water bowl for a few weeks. If added to the food I would start with a half dose twice daily for a week until some improvement is seen and then a whole dose once daily for a while, and and then as necessary. I would also give a CHILL-OUT CHEW before leaving the house until she becomes more comfortable with your leaving. Some dogs find it relaxing to listen to classical music when they are alone, so that could be another thing to try along with the above. In addition I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 with meals. Better gut health can positively affect behavior. Diet can also play a role too. What do you feed your dog and give as treats? Does your dog go to class or have structured time with you?

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.
