Hello, I am sorry to hear your dog has developed this fear. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. If you want to try something herbal or over the counter (nonprescription), you could try Zylkene, or Stress Away. Zylkene is made from milk, and Stress Away is herbal. You could also try a DAP (dog appeasing pheromone) collar or spray or diffuser. If her fear and anxiety is really bad, you may need prescription medication such as alprazolam or acepromazine. You could only get prescription medication from a veterinarian who has seen and examined her. Let me know what other questions you have.
