    Amazing and great!

    We got Monty's blood and urine test results this morning and the vet said they could not be better! We are so glad to hear that. He gave me quite a bit of literature about behavioural changes, for pets and us, as in how we handle it. I have a lot of homework to do! He said we could give him Benedryl or Melatonin to calm him, also there are anti-anxiety drugs if we think it necessary down the road. I asked about putting him in the utility room when he won't stop barking and he asked if he stops when we do that. He does. He said then that is his safe place and he feels secure there. Just to reiterate, Monty is not closed off in there. It has a kiddies gate and we have a clear line of sight of him and him, us.
    I now have a floor chair (don't know how else to describe it!) and I can sit closer to the floor much more comfortably for me and he can snuggle. We should get the Thundershirt tomorrow and I am hoping that will be better than the wrap.
    Last night he didn't start until about 6 pm so maybe the time change is helping too!

    Happy that things seem to be going better for you and Monty. Hope he does well with his Thundershirt.
