I would love to help you figure miss Hazel's problem out. what kind of food do you have her on right now?

Customer
She's eating pro plan weight control i took her to the emergency room yesterday and she was medicated and finally went to the bathroom, they said she has anxiety

she has had a stressful week. getting a new home is a big deal for these sweet babies. I work in a humane society, and it is very common for us to get calls from new owners. say the dog is not eating or going to the bathroom. did the emergency vet give you anything for the anxiety?

Customer
they did an xray to make sure she didn't had any physical obstruction to go to the bathroom and then they medicated her midazolam, it seemed to really help her she even got close to our cat and played a little bit which for her is unusual because she has been avoiding him since she arrived, she went to the bathroom right after we arrived home last night from the vet

That is great new. she just need time to adjust. if i was you i would find some treats that she really like. and give her treats through out the day to start a bond with her. once she gets bonded with someone in the house she shouls settle down and became a lot happier. this could take up to a few months before she is 100 percent comforable around everything. just take it slow with herand lots of treats.

Customer
That's what i have been trying to do but yesterday she wouldn't take any treats because i think her tummy was so full and she was uncomfortable, hopefully now she trusts me to go to the bathroom normally, she has been very attached to me and follow me everywhere and was very happy to see me waiting for her at the vet yesterday so i think we're going the right way, she's a very very sweet dog

it sounds like you are going the right way. I did not get to thank you for adopting this sweet baby. we need more great people in this world like you.

Customer
Aaw i feel like she's the one that adopted me and chose me to be part of her family, she's a special dog and I'm really happy to have her
Customer
Thanks for reaching out we both appreciate!

I do believe they pick their people sometimes. is there any thing else i can help you with or answer for you?

Customer
I think we're doing good right now and figuring out most things, thank you so much

you are welcome best of luck to both of you

Customer
Thanks have a good one!
