It worked very quickly and I can see that it gives her relief. She now jumps up on the bed in the a.m. for belly rubs and cuddles with a big pit grin and a waggy tail. Before she was tentative and would just crawl under the covers and curl into a tight ball as close to me as possible.

Try the Prozac for Zelda and see if it eases her enough to work on behavior modification for the S.A.
Aw gotta love the pitty smiles!
You said minimal dose, what dose did you start out as?
I do have the prozac bottle.

She had a weaker, deeper, wiry pulse. because of her liver Qi stagnation it could cause more irritability therefore in general anxiety could occur? Before i had this vet i also tried composure for months- not so much..
