Anxiety issue

by Sue
(New jersey)

We used to have 5 dogs. 3 of which were Shihtzus. Over the years we have lost 4 of the 5 and have welcomed a new Bassett Hound into our home.


Upon the death of our 4th dog from the original 5, our remaining Shihtzu has become extremely anxious. He doesn't sleep at night and really isn't interested in food.

The new Basset Hound is very sympathetic to him. We just don't know how to help him. I am assuming that he is grieving the loss of his last pack member (as we all are). Any thoughts on this would be appreciated

your dog is in mourning as you are. he needs lots of love ,cudding & attention. just went through it with my shihtzu as well. it takes a few weeks for them to get over it, if it lasts more than a month a vet can give him something
