My healthy 2 year old pitbull mix has a history of anxiety.

Customer Question
My healthy 2 year...

My healthy 2 year old pitbull mix has a history of anxiety. he has been shivering for days and appears depressed. This is not unusual except it has been going on for several days. normally it is a few hours. note he always behaves this way in the car. he has never behaved this way for so long. he is otherwise happy and loving, playful. Today he was happy to go a walk. But ever since he has been some he has been anxious and depressed.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Bane

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bane?

He is a nervous dog. always barking and lunging at other dogs. he has panic attacks in the car. he loves to play but lately does not want to play. he want to hang out outside in the dirt and he refuses to come inside.
