I consulted with veterinary behaviorist Dr. E’Lise Christensen of Habits Vets, who made a life-changing distinction for Zani together with her prognosis and remedy. I shall be eternally grateful; Zani had been in disaster together with her phobia, anxiousness, and panic assaults. After Zani was steady, I carried out desensitization and counterconditioning for her phobia of beeps and whistles. This video exhibits her earlier than and after remedy.
