Exclamation Vana still having issues (eyes)

UPDATE
Last night when going to the store, I snuck out and the dogs didn't know I left. My hubby was home and said Vana came in and searched everywhere for me and then started shaking. I got home about hr later and she was acting very strange. I looked up shaking, trembling dog and found all sort of things. I put a call into the vet they open in 15 minutes. The only other time I have seen her like this is when the smoke alarm went of and she didn't calm down for about 2 hrs after. I will keep you posted! Please advise me if you know of anything!

I posted at the bottom of this but for those not following:
I have looked up the white dog shaker sydrome and this seems to fit but
"The treatment for white dog shaker syndrome is usually just corticosteroids. These steroids typically begin to reverse the tremors within a few days. Some of the dogs with this disease will require an extended treatment and may even retain some degree of the tremors for the rest of its life. Sometimes, in rare occasions, a dog with this disease will spontaneously recover." Vana seems to be recovering without the drugs at the same rate? I hate to mess with it just incase it is just a panic attack and seem will work through it naturally. Any thoughts?
The schnauzers are not as sensitive my Drake is a big baby but nothing like this, it helps to hear all the stories and it tends to make me believe she is in the bichon family!

yes it could. Don't sneak out on her anymore. She was probably frustrated because she didn't see you leave and she pannicked. Try a few short exits where she sees you leave.

Oh, God bless her. I hope she's all better today. Heaven knows what traumas she lived through before she came into your life. Wrapping her in calming, healing vibes. Give her an extra kiss for me.

years ago , when Molly was smaller , I used to play hide and seek. One time I hid so well, she couldn't find me. (in the closet). Well I could hear her whining and panting every time she went past me, so I finally came out. Boy was she excited to see me. For that night and even into the next day she hung near me. I still feel guilty for this.

Vet is booked only open till 12 but said to give her some children's benadryl to calm her down. If she seems to stay the same or get worse to go to the emergency vet. She is calmly resting on the bed. Dave I have to say that the thought that me sneeking out caused this breaks my heart- I am in tears and Russ keeps saying not to blame myself. If it was a toxin wouldn't it have passed or done it's deal by now? And if it was pain wouldn't she yelp or whine? It is like going backwards from when we rescued her- she was very docile then and it took awhile to coax our Banana out but I miss my bouncy baby!

Hey Jenny don't worry about it. Seems like all it is is anxiety attack of some sort. It will pass. Just make sure she sees you leave when you go out. Just some remedial SA excercises might help. http://petcentralpawsitivepetcare.wo...or-separation/

Jenny, I know how upsetting this must be for you. Abby used to have severe separation anxiety but is fine now. Although, when DH takes her out for a walk if she doesn't find me immediately upon coming in she gets a little panicky. Once she sees me then she is fine. So, I always make sure she knows I am leaving. I don't make a big deal out of it just say "Mama is leaving - see you later!"

I hope Vana will be fine after her benadryl wears off. Keep us posted.

Oh hope little Vana is calming down,and feeling happier now.With our pups I have the same ritual each time I go out so they know what to expect.Dizzie is a very calm Hav and would be fine what ever I do, but Nellie is more clingy.and likes a routine.Hope you all have a happy Easter,and Vana is bouncing like a spring lamb again very soon.
