Hi there.

It seems that this food may be giving your gal more carbohydrates giving her a "sugar" high causing this increase in energy and misbehaving. You are now in a catch 22 because this is the only food she can have and this is causing some other issues. The best thing to do is to give her a holistic medication that will calm her down. This is a combination of herbs that will settle her down without using drugs. Unless you want to attempt to find another food that she will not react to, this may be your only thing that is reasonable.

I have used PetAlive Pet Calm and another product called Missing Link.

Good Luck!!

ok i have seen this before but is it a long term solution?? is there anything else i can try ??
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Loretta, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 years ago
This is not a long term solution but since she is still young, this will allow her to mature and give you time to out boundaries around her through training and discipline. Once this is established, then you will not need to use this any longer.

How do i creat boundaries around her? Sorry i'm not to sure what this means can you explain in more detail?

 

thanks

 

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Loretta, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 years ago
What I mean is to discipline her when she gets too excited and let her know by training that certain things are not appropriate behavior. When she misbehaves, reprimand her using a coke can with pennies to get her attention and saying a strong NO! I have also used Ultrasonic collars if the dog is hard headed.

Train her during this time. If the play fighting with the other dog is too violent, let her know.
