My Australian Shepherd Has Panic Attacks

by Mary
(Richmond, Virginia)

Our Aussie has what the vet calls panic attacks. There is no pattern to how they occur. Once she starts the attack she trembles and wants to be held, but you can't sit. You must stand holding her and for whatever reason, she wants to be held in our master bathroom only.

The panic attacks can last upwards of an hour. The vet gave us meds but they just knock her out.

Does anyone else experience this?
