I'm hoping this helps with some of her anxiety issues. Even
if it doesn't, it still looks cute on her lol. I put the second picture
on here too so you can see some of Jax's personality....which is,
if you're on the couch I'm suppose to be on top of you loving you
and giving you kisses. :rolleyes:


Mimi - "Not sure if I like this."
Jax - "kiss kiss kiss...HEY what is this ? Kiss kiss kiss!"




Mimi likes it!

She is sooo cute in that 2nd pic! :)
What are her anxieties?
Mel she has so many issues lol. She was a part of a rescue where
several dogs were treated badly. Overall most of her anxiety
comes from her being fearful. Quick movements, strangers, noises,
riding in cars. Don't get me wrong, she has improved greatly, so
I'm hoping this little extra will help her even more.

We are going to the park later, so I will let you guys know
how it works for us!

Have you ever tried the Bach Flower remedys? :love7: I absolutely love them...I think I have almost all of them. They have been so helpful over the years. I used them when my sheltie, Frankie, got seizures. I use them now on Alvin when it's firework time or if I know bad weather is approaching ( doesn't like thunder). I've used them for other fear based problems too with different pets, as well as for grief support when one of them passes ( I take it too then :(), when changes are underway of any type...and the list goes on! :colors:

Try Chamberlans in Grove Park. You can also order off of vitacost.com

I really really recommend this book from amazon.com

Bach Flower Remedys for Dogs ( sorry couldn't get the link to copy)

It gives a great overview of what they are, how they work, mixing your own concoctions and more (even briefly how they work on people).

LMK what you think! :)

Mimi, is a very photogenic doggy! I hope
it works for you! I know when my toy poodle
was a puppy and she had separation anxiety
the vet recommended rescue remedy by Bach.
I think it would have been better if he recommended
something specifically for dogs, though.

My review ;)

Car riding - Mimi usually is a bit frantic in the car. With her thundershirt on
she curled up in her blanket and rested. Big difference and big thumbs up
there. :thumbup:

At the park - Normally, if we are walking and a bigger dog comes near
her, she will tuck her tail and squat down to the ground and most of the
time yelp and cry ( really loud ) even though they aren't even touching
her. For the last three days with her shirt on she has been better.

She is in no way running up happy to greet them, but she wasn't screaming
so that's a plus. Overall she seems much more confident in her shirt. She
was even leading the way a couple of times through the heavy wooded parts
of the walk. Normally she's right on my heels creeping through like something
might jump out and get her at any point in time.
