The DAP has helped, I wouldn't say it was temporary. It did reduce his anxiety while I was away. The problem that the DAP won't address is his general anxiety out in the open. I had my caretaker watch my dog while I was away Saturday night - Sunday morning, Kananga refused to go outside. He held his bladder for 20 hours :eek: until I got there. He's been acting very strange in the last month or two. That's why I keep thinking there's a dog in heat nearby and that's easily possible with 30-40+ dogs in our hi-rise alone. Regardless, my vet agrees that this may help calm him down, especially during his breeding season. As long as the bloodwork comes back good I think it should be fairly quick and relatively painless for him.
I'll still keep using the DAP until a bit after he recovers. Then see how he does.
Just curious, how long have you had him?
