Yes, this is what the vet said I had to do. While I somewhat bought what she was saying...i couldn't help but snicker every time she said "hot dog" hehehe Anyhoo, so like I said...i went to a chinese medicine vet. Oakley was prescribed "shen calmer" & a crockpot diet. Anyone ever heard of either? I can post the recipe for his diet if someone requests...it is supposed to be all 'cooling' foods. I bought all the ingredients, but can't make it til tomorrow cause it has to be in the pot for 8 hrs. We'll see how it goes! These pills are REALLY freaking annoying though. I have to give 5pills/2x day!! I have to hide everyone really well, cause Oakley is the master at finding them...so I just ended up with my fingers covered in PB, lol.
