    Default What do you guys use for anxiety issues?

    I know there are sprays, pills, collars, cookies and chews. Ive tried the collar and Lavender aromatherapy. I did paxil, but I hate having her on a pill everyday if she doesnt have anxiety all the time.

    She needs it for car rides and vet trips.


    What do you guys use that actually works???

    Hi Sheena! I use a thundershirt for Jersey. Available at petsmart, petco amazon etc. It's a lightweight wraparound shirt that makes your pup feel secure. It really works! Jersey has a terrible time when we have thunderstorms and with the shirt on... she just sleeps through them! Money back guarantee at petco and petsmart! Hope this helps!!!!

    Yup! I understand! Does she wear a harness? I've found that a harness works to a lesser extent... but still calms Jersey down.

    Default Re: What do you guys use for anxiety issues?

    I had to use it for car rides for Banks... Xanax. it was the only time I gave it to her. It did not make her sleepy or 'drugged' she was just relaxed.

    I did try Adaptil for a few trips, but it was just before she passed and I can't remember if it worked or not (sorry).

    What type of harness do you have? Is it hard to get on and that is why she hates it?

    Fezzik loves car rides. We are waiting for his sleepypod harness for the car. Have you tried having someone sit in back with her. I find mine does better when we do that excitement wise.

    You could also try sitting and playing in car but not going anywhere.

    You can use your own shirt as it has your scent on it. Make sure it's snuggled. Does same job as the thunder shirt and outher in a crate when you travel.

    I can see Rosie and I now ........
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
