It is important to avoid crate confinement, if you believe there is a risk of the dog injuring itself. Otherwise, there are forms of behavior modification or medication (e.g., antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs) that you can request from your veterinarian.
Please consult an expert before implementing these forms of behavior modification,as improper use of these exercises can worsen the condition.
If your dog is given medication, complete blood count (CBC) and biochemistry profiles should be monitored by your veterinarian periodically. Prognosis depends on severity, duration, and the dog's ability to avoid injuries. However, the condition may worsen if left untreated.
