Took both dogs to the vet today. Vaccine time. Chloe needed her thyroid levels checked, don't believe she is on the correct dose of solixine. She initially lost about 10 pounds then started with severe allergies last summer and put back on 8 pounds. Kenzie, she is our crazy dog. Always has to be touching you. Chews things up if we leave. Tried to crate her early on but yelps and cries to no end. Still if you leave she will find a way to get into rooms that don't have the door shut all the way. She won't even go outside unless you stand and watch, or go with. So the vet says she has extreme seperation anxiety. Suggested putting her on Prozac. Still, she said that would not cure her, but make her more suseptible to accept detachment. Since that is a bit pricy, I decided to try amatryptaline (sp??). We will give that a month and see what happens. They both go out to the dog run, or parks to run atleast twice a day. About a 2 miles hike through the dog park. Usually on the long walks/runs, Chloe will begin to limp, her back right leg. Dr. suggested the same joint medication my husband takes from GNC..expensive. Now...we need to work on seperation anxiety. Any advice?
