Small update Miss Moo has started on Prozac frown I so hope this helps her. I have had the tablets here for a few days and REALLY haven't wanted to go down this route. I'm not sure why I am so reluctant as I take anti-depressants but it just almost feels like I've failed her.

I'm so sorry, Bianca. You should certainly not feel like a failure when you do all you can for your dogs.

I would like to suggest again that Miss Moo might benefit from the Cholodin that I mentioned previously. Skye's behavior had gotten so bizarre that it was becoming the focus of every evening, waiting for it to start around sundown. She was diagnosed with uti which I know you have ruled our for Miss Moo, but that was not the total reason for her changes.

Her condition was much improved after treatment, but in the long run it was, and is, cholodin that helps keep her normal day to day.

I hope whatever you decide for Miss Moo brings you both some relief from worry and stress.

hugging hugging hugging Moo has the most caring Mum in you, Bianca! You do everything you possibly can for your dogs. thumbup I'm so very sorry that she isn't doing better, and that a cause isn't yet found.

Might you consider the Cholodin for Molly? I remember being as puzzled as everyone else when Skye's behavior changed so radically.

Just mentioning this because.. well, just because. Perhaps a change in diet might help her. I am myself so sensitive to some preservatives and artificial additives, that it effects my sleep and mood. Honestly! confused2
I would suggest a balanced all-raw diet, but if not, then switching to a grain-free food. If she's on a grain-free food, try gently, slowly transitioning to a different one. You never know, it just might help her.

Sending you and Moo lots of support and well-wishes today! bloomrose

I just hate to read that Miss Moo is still behaving weirdly. I mean you do have enough to worry about with Coop's hips and the specialist's recommendations. Actually, in your place I would ask Molly to share the Prozac with me.

As you know, I can't offer any knowledgeable advice. All the same, I join everybody in sending extremely positive (+++++++++++++++) thoughts that Molly is back to herself and you get an actionable plan for your black puppy.

take care,
Mary Jane

I've been trying to think of something productive to say, but I don't have much. There are things you can experiment with, but they are all experiments. With a GSD, I *always* worry about undetermined infection that doesn't show up in bloodwork since they sometimes can't mount a defense. I am always amazed at what a great reponse older dogs have to that supplement that Bonnie is uing. I know Max had a huge response to st. John's Wort and I wish I had discovered that when he was younger.

You have way too much on your plate hugging

I'm sorry Bianca, but please do know that you have in no way failed The Moo. If you didn't already have a mountain of poop to deal with you might have more time and thought to put into her issues. As it is, we can all only handle as much of life's curveballs as we can, and sometimes we have to just do our best and know that is good enough. If the Prozac eases her anxiety, then great! That gives you more time to focus on the other stuff you have going on. When things settle out for you, then you can re-address Molly's anxieties with a clearer head. hugging

teary Thank you all so much, you are all so kind hugging

Bonnie, thank you again for mentioning the Cholodin. To be honest I had forgotten about that hammer I will have a look at the one and only health food shop here if not I will order that one.

I *think* it takes about 6 weeks to know whether this will work for her so I should be able to get that supplement from over there by then.

I just wish she could settle and not be on alert and panicking all the time. I want my goofy happy girl back frown

This sounds like how my dogs behave when Don is out of town. It's so annoying!! I have to work to be compassionate for them (after the tenth time they erupt barking over the chipmunk that ran across the driveway, making me jump out of my skin)!

It is annoying!

We had to take Zane to the airport this morning so my parents came over to feed/toilet. Dad called me and said Molly was really odd, crying. He said it sounded like what Cooper does. It could be that I don't make a habit of leaving the house at 3am or something else.

I didn't give her the tablet tonight. It just isn't sitting right with me and I don't know why but will trust my instinct for now. Am about to start searching online for the cholodin now.
