Default Re: Need Help with Nondiabetic Schnauzer

A woman who works part time for me had a dog with some type of throat obstruction. (I think it was cancer). By using prozac, they got a few more months with him as it relaxed him enough that he could eat around the obstruction

This article showed up in my FB feed today. Not sure if there is anything that might be helpful or not but thought I'd pass it along. It starts out by saying, "Acepromazine won't help and will probably make his fears worse. " but goes on to give tips as to other things that may help:

Yes, I always thought that if I ever met the person responsible for Sparky's anxiety and fear, I would kick their a** from here to China. And then I would start getting mean.

We lost Maggie's best friend and "caretaker" this past Saturday. It was a devastating loss because despite having congestive heart failure, she was running and barking all day Friday, and eating well. She suddenly started the labored breathing and then she started throwing up a little. My husband took her to the ER - we both thought a shot of lasix would do the trick. She went into cardiac arrest within probably 20 minutes of being there. I never dreamed she would never be coming back when she left. I hate that I wasn't there. I was actually getting ready to go take her to our regular vet when my husband walked through the door without her. It really has been tough because it opens up all the pain of Maggie again and I feel really guilty. Maybe if I hadn't been so preoccupied with Maggie's care...... but I know that it is not right to feel like that. She was loved and had a pretty good life. If nothing else, I blame the horrible puppy mill - maybe if she wasn't starved and abused or had decent nutrition as a young dog instead of being forced to have puppies, life might have been different for her. At least, she knew we loved her.

Just saw this, Amy. So sorry for your loss.

You gave Mya a great home with plenty of love, and she knows this.
