One of my dogs has separation anxiety so my (hopefully) solution??
See answer in reply :)


So, it looks like I should explain. My almost 7 year old German Spitz, Cujo has seperation anxiety. He must be with me all the time or he panics and has seizures (with vomiting). He (and his sister) gets a 30 minute walk in the morning, they get several walks during the day (I bring them to work with me and walk them throughout the day), and an evening walk with the whole family. On days, I don't bring them with me, my husband is home working and he does the same regimen. Anyways Cujo has training exercises we do everyday and he gets love from everyone (he's great with everybody). He has medication that has helped a little but he still panics whenever he can't be with me but knows I am around. After every test we can possibly run, he was diagnosed with idiopathic psychosomatic disorder. Basically, he has seizures for absolutely no health reason other than stress due to his seperation anxiety. This food is in addition to his medication and I will giving Rescue Remedy as well and I hope as a whole it will help him. Hope this cleared some things up:)

My dog got it so bad our last move, aghh it was horrible... Although he's a rescue, and was picked up starving by the highway idk if his former family abandoned him. So yeah that was an awful couple months. Thank goodness with this move we just completed he handled it well. I guess he realized we weren't going to just leave him, even though he is a stinky beast. Lol Anyway good luck with the new food.

Don't make a fuss over them when you get back. Ignore until they relax. Same when you leave.

Exercise, discipline, affection.

Be the pack leader.


No need for calm food

Yes maam. My dog is on it for anxiety issues. I had a pit bull with some SAD and it was rough before we found the right combo of food, time away, and medicine. We lost a couch.
