    Just want to post a positive update that might help others.

    After a month of intermittent diarrhea and lots of noise phobia and hiding, Mindy is getting better! The GI stuff is holding steady (fingers crossed). We started on Calming Care probiotic which is especially formulated by Purina for dogs with anxiety and GI issues. We also started using the Adaptil plug in pheromone diffuser. Both things seem to be helping.

    She is still startled and hiding from some noises but recovers much more quickly and seems more relaxed in general.

    Thanks for listening.

    Wonderful to hear. It may be two steps forward one step back for a while, but progress is progress! The trickiest thing is to just be patient.
