Belated welcome to Freddie and to Luanne too! This is Carol from wheelcorgis! I have a Tri on wheels and a sable couch potato, both rescues. Lucky is our Tri, and a handful - barks, he is the wanderer, I think he is ADHD at times! Good luck with meds - i am a retired dietitian and pharmacy technician also. Medications can be hard. Carol, Lucky and Sonny
I am a human with OCD, and trust me its probably just as hard for Freddie as it is for you. However dogs live in the moment, humans do not.
I have never been on the same medication as a dog before, so this is new to me. I was on Prozac when I was younger, and am now on 100mg Zoloft. But I was told that human medication was bad for dogs. How is it Freddie is able to take these medications?
Hi LuAnne! First, welcome. Glad you joined us. Sounds like Freddie has some very serious behavior issues. There are different and new drugs for these issues. When I remember the name I'll pass it along. Until then, if you have access to a canine behaviorist, it would be helpful. It's so difficult for a trainer or vet to address since it is generally out of our field of education. However, a good canine behaviorist can be a god-send. Kokomo isn't really small. There should be someone in the area. You might ask your local PetSmart trainer if he/she knows of someone. Good luck.
