I have a 5-1/2 week old Boston Bull and she was bit by my bigger dog. She was with us for 2 days before the bite and had no seperation anxiety, she fit in perfectly with our family and was hyper, happy and loving! The bigger dog has since been given to a good home with no little dogs. They got along well and were always supervised thisbwas just unavoidable. My puppy is 3.5lbs and older sog is 65lbs. The puppy was sleeping in the living room, my husband and i were in there also, my older dog was walking by and startled the puppy out of her sleep and she gave a big loud yelp (the puppy). My older dog reacted and bit once and my husband grabbed her. The puppy had 2 punctures, one on the neck (superficial) and one under her opposite front leg. She spent the night at the Vet and was released with antibiotics and a bruised lung. My quiestion is this; How do i help her with PTSD? I know she has it, today is her third day home and she sulks around the house and barely plays and sleeps alot! She has nightmares, she cries loud when she sleeps and she never did that when we first got her. She wants to sleep in my lap but if i move or touch her she cries (in her sleep). How can i help her?
