Anxiety therapy dog

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety therapy dog


Avatar f tn It would be best to try to get to the root of his problems by consulting a veterinary behaviorist/doggie psychiatrist. If there are none in your area, a good dog trainer, such as a "dog whisperer" may help. Next I would try to locate a veterinary herbalist/acupuncturist since the use of herbs and acupuncture are milder than Prozac.
Avatar m tn Hi im Brandon, and ive been worrying alot lately,it all started back in 7th grade when i use to wake up shaking and sweating and sometimes with goosebumps, and now im in 9th grade heading into 10th, its been pretty normal for me between those two years and i havent had those problems at all and i forgot all about them, i hang with my friends on a daily basis and i love my family and my dog pete and my cat jasper.
Avatar m tn I was experiencing a numb head, pain behind the eyes, pain in the right of my chest now and then, acid reflux, bit of a blood taste in my mouth, blurred vision if i stare at something for to long, A sort of detached feeling from reality, twitching of limbs in arms/legs and also i would find I would jump at the smallest things like my friends dog just putting his paw on my knee. I also had one evening where i felt very faint and thought i would pass out feeling very hot then cold.
Avatar n tn Have had multiple tests all normal with the final diagnosis of anxiety. I attempted to go on an anti-anxiety medication and tried for 2 days. I was so out of it, aggitated and total loss of control. The side effects could last up to 2 wks and I wasn't willing to try another day. I have Ativan only as needed and I am so afraid to become addicted to it, I think I have used it 3 times total. I am talking with a counselor and find that talking with a close friend or family member helps.
Avatar f tn Is this child seeing a medical mental health specialist with experience in anxiety issues as as child psychiatrist or child neurologist? The best approach to learning how to manage anxiety is a multi-modal approach where therapy is only one component. OCD is an especially stubborn anxiety disorder and I would suggest you find help as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn Hi , I am 54, genotype 1a and about to start triple therapy ! I must admit I'm scared of the side effects - but more worried about letting the Hep C virus remain in my body .. I am healthy and am going to try and remain positive ( hard to do when you're vomiting on the bathroom floor for days on end as one of my friends was ) . Has anyone managed to keep exercising and generally get through treatment with not too many side effects .

1048831 tn?1253657096 Hi, My dog Kobuk was my therapy dog, I suffer from depression and anxiety. I had my doctor write a letter and a friend had an extra "jacket" that said service dog and a space for the letter go in it. I can even fly with him by me on the plane. He is 14 now and is cataracts but he still barks if I'm talking too long so someone and he knows that I'm starting to get anxious. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I went on an Antidepressant like you and went to talk therapy to no avail. My anxiety stemmed from my health and I would not believe the doctors or therapists until I finally accepted the anxiety. Whether you have or not, I do not know, but my advice would be to stress patience. Many times with medications and therapists, it can take some trial and error to get the right combination of therapy. How long have you been on the Paxil? You have definitely come to the right place...
630047 tn?1289252121 For mild forms of situational Depression and anxiety I am a firm believer that one can manage with ONLY good productive cognative therapy, BUT If the Depression is Moderate to severe in nature, Then both CBT and Meds are the best approach IMO. You see it kind of depends because depression can manifest or be caused by many different factors.
Avatar m tn Thanks for your response I started using for back pain it was so bad i could not even drive my car or walk 15 ft. I knew the vicodin was addictive but knew nothing of ultram or darvon the Doc told me they where not addicting. Right now it seems like it would be easy to just take the damn pills. Hope I can last it out.
Avatar m tn Put it on him, and keep it on him, except when he needs to eat. Some muzzles allow the dog to drink water, but do not allow the dog to open its mouth enough to attack or bite. Check this out. Make sure he can drink water, one way or another. Try to keep your two dogs apart at mealtimes. Food jealousy can be pretty hair raising. And hold on until you get some more reponses here.
Avatar f tn If you aren't a 'dog person' then perhaps it is hard to understand, but my dog has been a real therapy aid to me over the years and I love him so much. I cry just looking at him, as I know he hasn't got long left (he has cancer, and is very elderly). I have no idea how I'll cope when he's gone. I try to enjoy my time with him but inevitably I often think about it. I especially have trouble at night and find it difficult to sleep.
Avatar m tn Before you try meds have you tried therapy with a therapist who specializes in anxiety treatment? That's the place to start. As for doing things you know aren't good for you, that's what depression and anxiety do to us but anytime you want to do what's best for yourself there's nothing holding you back but yourself and the way you're thinking about things. That's what therapy will work on.
Avatar f tn The thing that really helped me is recognising when the attack was going to start. Feeling the anxiety rising . My cure? Got myself a dog . When the panic began to rise I took the dog for a good long walk at a fast pace. The walk got rid of all that dangerous adrenalin in the body and the panic attacks diminished. You don't need a dog though. Just put the radio on and dance round the room or walk up and down the stairs.
1891163 tn?1321122646 I try to keep mine under control with therapy and meds. I too am a thrill seeker. I think a lot of my anxiety came from when I lost twin babies. But it could have started yrs before that. And after losing the babies,it hit me,and ever since I need meds to control it. I have tried to go without meds,but I always end up having the attacks again. One of the first things they test you for when experianceing anxiety is your thyroid. In your case maybe your anxiety is caused by your thyroid issue.
6531549 tn?1382156890 Given you don't want to take medication, have you tried therapy? Particularly with an anxiety specialist, perhaps a CBT therapist? As for hormonal problems, you can see someone who can diagnose that, but it isn't easy to find good people for subtle problems. There are psychiatrists called functional physicians who will test you for thyroid and hormonal problems to see if there's something going on.
Avatar m tn Ok I just discovered on my own by doing some reading on the internet that I actually have death anxiety which is basically a severe fear of dying. I was wondering if any of you suffer from this type of anxiety and if so how you cope with it?

1794638 tn?1345158661 Hello Everyone, I will be starting my tri therapy in 4 days and I'm starting to freak a bit. I have been waiting 10 years to start, however my GI didnt think the timing was right due to my mental health. Depression, Anxiety & Fatique has been a part of my life for over 10 years now, which I am being treated for also. I will be going to the GI on Friday, Sept 9 for my initial Mock daily dosage & shot, along with some information and training.
1116669 tn?1269146866 As I am imminintly starting telaprevir, interferon and riba with a history (18 years ago and 9 years ago respectively) of failing mono and dual therapy I'm hoping to start a specific thread. Obviously there's an urgency to defeat the virus once you become cirrhotic as I have. I'd be grateful to anyone who fits this minority of patients if they would id any triple therapy tips. It's difficult not to catastrophize when reading about massive rashes and wigs and staying in bed, etc....
1990276 tn?1328682015 Rash developed most often during the first 4 weeks, but was reported at any time during telaprevir combination therapy. Rash improved following the completion or discontinuation of telaprevir; however, rashes have taken weeks to completely resolve. Rash events led to discontinuation of telaprevir alone and telaprevir combination therapy in 6% and 1% of patients, respectively. Dermatologic side effects have included rash (56%) and pruritus (47%). Severe rash (e.g.

Avatar m tn I've now been hypo for about 3-4 years. I started of sub-clinical (tsh between 5-10) and there was debate if I needed therapy or not. Regardless of that, I had what seemed to be hypo symptoms. The main ones for me were, and continue to be fatigue, joint and muscle weakness. I am 36 m. I used to be able to run a marathon after a heavy night of drinking no problems, now I can barely function. I don't know if my symptoms have gotten worse of I am just more aware of my disposition.
605458 tn?1539232408 My abnormal anxiety issues are limited to social anxiety, a vague, but intense fear of social situations, new people, and new places. It used to be quite pervasive growing up, but now I can do a lot of things without anxiety, like go to a restaurant with family. It is the new and unfamiliar I still struggle with. I was all safe in my reclusion until recently I have had the desire to expand my life- I want friends and to get out in the world. An opportunity presented itself.

20819355 tn?1522242765 i'm struggling to eat or sleep which is obviously not making me feel any better. it's mostly due to both ocd and health anxiety about rabies after my dog scratched me and broke the skin (which, i know, is silly; i'm really embarrassed about this fear specifically but i can't help what i'm afraid of :^(). i have been going crazy trying to convince myself that i'm okay but i just can't... get it to work despite having a lot of information and knowledge on my side.
