My 10 yr old male crestie has been going through serious anxiety. We lost his best buddy Oreo to lymphoma six weeks ago and when we leave him he cries all day long. We have two DAP diffusers going and have had to resort to trazadone while we are at work. Does anyone else have experience with grieving in cresties or serious separation anxiety?

Aww I'm sorry for your loss. One of my cresteds has pretty bad separation anxiety when crated but I can't leave him out unsupervised so I started putting one of my other dogs in the crate with him and that's helped some. That isn't very useful for your situation though.

I have read that using stimulation toys help, like stuffed kongs and those puzzles with food hidden in them. Also make sure he's worn out before leaving him. Sometimes giving them access to your bedroom helps because your scent is strong in there and it's normally considered a safe place to dogs since that's where their "pack" sleeps.

He can't have too much protein due to calcium oxylate stones and we have a female crestie who is food aggressive and I fear they would fight. He has access to my bedroom and I give him my night shirt every morning before I leave.

Can someone send an email to the admin for me requesting they send me a way to reset my ccc password? I know I have albums and old posts in there... :/

My PP has major separation anxiety too, but she is a rescue dog with a broken leg and I am her 4th owner. I got her a thunder vest and calming spray I got from Amazon made by thunder vest company. I spray the vest and put on her 15 minutes before I leave and has helped her greatly
