|Jax08||Look at the link. It lists all the ingredients. It seems to work for Sierra when Scott remembers to give it to her.|

Since she's right in front of me, I tell her to 'Leave it'. If that doesn't work, I have a squirt bottle. Picture this: on the phone with a customer. I'm standing at the edge of my desk, squirt bottle in hand. (She loves the hose, hates the squirt bottle).
What is this 'Stress Free'? Can I give her a margarita to help calm her?

|Jax08||I just did a quick google search and everything you've tested for is listed as a cause, as well as OCD. They recommend bitter sprays...which you've tried. And behavior modification but you would have to keep her near you at all time to stop the behavior and redirect. With her other issues you've had, I wonder if the Stress Free might also help those as those are related to fear and anxiety also.|

There are many herbs for anxiety. You could try Springtimeinc's Stress formula.

When we tested her thyroid, I insisted upon the full panel - not just T4 or TSH. Since I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, that's 1 area about which I know something. And usually, it's under-diagnosed. But her panel was well within normal limits.
OCD? That's what I'm thinking. But I don't know how to fix it. Meds would not be my first choice. Some homemade remedy to keep her teeth away from her rear paws would be splendid.

|Jax08||Do you think it's an OCD thing? And not a medical issue? Have you tried any anti-anxiety meds?|

You've tried all that conventional has to offer
Food - I am sure you know the answer RAW - CARB FREE (sugar free - yeasts)
Homeopathic detox re: vaccines -
Detox kidneys and liver - dandelion, milk thistle
Immune system support -
Adrenals (excrete hormones re: yeast) - Aswagandha
Thyroid is strongly linked to itchy skin problems - kelp, ashwagandha
Have a thyroid test done - but have it doen by Dr. Jean Dodds (specifically)
If the thyroid is in the grey area - meaning Normal in the low end T4 which is not significant in conventional medicine - you could use things like noted and then there is thyroid glandulars - or raw thyroid

|Olivers mama||Since we adopted this Rescue, I honestly believe she's had every test known to man: allergy, thyroid, GSD-prone ailments. She's healthy as a horse. I've never had a ChewBacca before - don't much like it, either.|

|Benevolence||I've heard that larger breeds that chew/lick constantly at their back feet may be having circulation issues, possibly due to heart problems. Hopefully that's not the case here. Sorry, can't offer much advice.|
