Guest LunaTheGreyt Posted August 15, 2013 Share Posted August 15, 2013 (edited) Just spent the past 10 minutes having a breakdown because I just don't know how I feel or what to do anymore. As I'm sure you're all sick of hearing, Luna has had issues with separation anxiety for almost the entire 3 months I've had her, and it only seems to be getting worse. Today she broke out of her crate for the first time, tore off her muzzle, and broke my blinds. She did not pee or poop, which tells me that she was not trying to get out because she had to potty. I started crating her again because of having issues with her and my blinds (I really do not like people being able to see into my apartment, and they help keep it cooler inside since my windows receive direct sun all day). I'm afraid of reinforcing the crate with clips in case she injures herself, I'm afraid of her getting her muzzle caught in her attempt to pull it off, I'm afraid she's going to destroy fixtures in the condo I rent...everything just seems to be getting worse. I received a lot of votes on my other post (also via Facebook) that getting a second grey completely alleviated the SA of dog #1, but right now I am just very hesitant to even foster since I rent. I don't know what the right thing to do is. I'm just very sad/frustrated right now. Feeling like I'm failing her, making myself sick with worry all the time, risking damage to her or the apartment...I just don't know what to do. Not sure what I'm looking for here but just had to vent. I don't want to think about giving her up...I just love her so much. ETA: She's been on the max dose of Clomicalm/Clomipramine for several weeks (but has been medicated since June). I'm considering asking the vet about changing medications since things have only gotten worse (she seemed like she was "better" for about 2 days last week then got worse than before).
