    Default I wrapped him

    -wrapped-jpg

    Not much change for Monty with his 'Sundowners'. I am giving him the Senilfe (5 days now) but haven't noticed any difference so far but it is still early. The other calming chews did nothing at all. I take him to the dog park and that hasn't had much effect. I have now started wrapping him when he starts getting upset and there is an immediate effect but it varies as to how long that lasts. At the moment all is quiet and he is relaxed, YAY!!! I have ordered a Thundershirt for him and we are waiting for it to arrive. We have a Vet appointment with his bully vet on Wednesday and will have a senior dog check done. I want to make sure there is nothing medical going on. It makes us very sad to see him like this and I am sure he is not happy either. Fingers crossed the vet has some suggestions.

    Try adding them essential oils or just lavender n peppermint to your diffuser if you’re worried. You can also mix it with CO n rub it on his head. Will penetrate slowly to the brain to calm him. I sure would do it to Nyala or Duke.

    A LOT of people swear by the Thundershirt, so I hope that it works for you!!!

    CBD oil might help calm him. But it is a good idea to rule out any medical issues so keep us posted!

    I am praying that you find that "sweet spot" for something that helps. I'm really sorry that you're all going through this BUT He has the most loving Mom and Dad, I just KNOW that you will land on that something that gives him (and your) peace. Hope the "wrap works" please keep us posted. BIG BULLY hugs from Joey and I
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    He's so cute in that photo. I've heard about thunder shirts and weighted blankets; does the wrap have the same function? Is it bandage or some other material? Hope beautiful Monty soon feels better.

    Yes, same function, It is a temporary measure until I get the Thundershirt. I used a wide stretch bandage that I had, it is snug but not tight. I looked online and people have used scarves too. He doesn't mind it at all and it stops the behaviour immediately. He will just lay down for a while and relax.
