Hello everyone. So today we took our lovely queen Zola to the vet for her first visit since her adoption. She checks out great! One thing we discussed with the vet is her massive separation anxiety. She has been with us now for about a month, and she is crate trained. However, she goes absolutely insane when my husband and I leave her alone in her crate. I am talking MASSIVE destruction. We had a cute bed in her crate, and soft toys (those are her favorite) and she totally shredded them. So, now we leave her in her crate with nothing but her Kong, and she was doing ok… until today. Today she figured out a way to "walk" her crate over to a nightstand and her toy basket, that are both several feet away. What met my husband and me when we got home... MASSIVE destruction.
So..... the vet said we can try a product called the Thudershirt http://www.thundershirt.com/lpc2/ that is supposed to calm a dog that has anxiety. Has anyone ever tried this, or had any results? Is there any way we can get her over her separation anxiety? We have to crate her when we go to work…. but she hates it. Any ideas???
