Combat Veterans with PTSD Only!

My Combat PTSD is for combat veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) only, not that you served in the military and have PTSD, but you physically deployed to a combat zone itself and were either land or sea based (in direct naval or air support), and you have PTSD as a direct result of your combat service. No exceptions! This community IS NOT for spouses, family or friends of veterans. Spouses, family and friends can find support at MyPTSD.com.

Dog With Anxiety Disorder

Discussion in 'Stand At The Bar' started by Jimmy, Jan 28, 2012.

  1. LMAO. I took our 8 year old dog to the vet's yesterday. Every time there is a loud noise, like a cap gun, a whistle, or thunderstorm etc, she goes spastic.

    The vet told me she is a geriatric dog being 8 years and over and that she suffers from and anxiety disorder. She grinds her teeth, and get this, they are prescribing her Xanax. hahahahaha
     
  2. Damn, they've got aminals sorted, how come we're a problem?
     
  3. My dogs don't like loud noises either, fireworks or thunderstorms make them very jumpy. I think they just get nervous 'cause they don't know where the noise is coming from. We have something we give them called HP Anxiety TFLN that you can get online. It's a homeopathic remedy that seems to work well. They get a few drops in their mouth and in a little while they aren't as jumpy.

    Sometimes when one reacts a certain way the other ones learn from it and react the same. They're a lot like people in that respect.

  4. I got 2 jack russell`s, the youngest is 8 saved from a life in the pound, any really load noise and he rolls over and pisses every where. And I never made a connection to any medical conditions we could have. You can tell he got beaten as a pup, but hell, I have a mop, and just don`t make any load noises.
     
  5. Yeah, well Shan was saved from the RSPCA. She has always taken off at loud noises. But the vet reckons she can sense my Anxiety.
    I suppose that is why they have Service Dogs for people like us.
     
  6. My first dog was dumped at the pound because of his anxiety disorders. And that is why I argued, Squid-style, with the moron working there. Needless to say after seven years here with me, he really is my best friend. Yes, we hide together in the basement together during the damned Offutt AFB air show. sad part is, he gets better meds than I do.
