Customer Question

My dog, mixed breed, was in a terrible situation before we rescued her. And has always been a little fearful. But 1.5 years later, she was great with us -- bouncy, happy, tail up. For the last week, however, she's been very fearful. She urinates on the floor and follows me around, panting. I'm at a loss. We did have my mom visiting last week but she adores my mom. No other changes.
