Remember Your Beloved Pet
Pet anxiety

My little 4 year old Chihuahua has been going through this for over a year now, at least two to three time a month and always around 2 or 3 in the morning. All the posts I have read are exact symptoms of my little girls, troubles. I am baffled as to what this is and very concerned for the poor helpless little soul. I now am trying a product called, "Rescue Remedy". It seems to help her come out of it a lot more sooner than before, where it took 1 to 2 hours to get her back to somewhat normal. It can be purchased in the spray form or in drops. And it is a natural remedy!

That could be the distraction factor at work there. Also, if the pet's human is less anxious, the pet will recover much faster. Dogs and cats can be really sensitive that way. I mention this because even if you don't have the money to go and buy Bach's Flower Remedies (Rescue Remedy is one of those) you can still use something strongly scented or strong-tasting for distraction purposes, and you can calm yourself down that way too, knowing you are doing something to help. That will let your little pet recover much more quickly.
