Hi, this is Dr. Sara. So sorry to hear you are having this much trouble with him. This is certainly a lot of stress. Is Hamish adopted or have you had him since he was a pup? Is he neutered?? Do you think he is painful in his back or tail? If you touch him other places, is he ok?
It sounds like he needs to be evaluated for pain. Your vet should be able to give you a tranquilizer pill to feed him at home so they can examine him. If he's not painful, I would consider putting him on a medication like Prozac and definitely neutering him. If it is just aggression, a lot of that starts because they aren't neutered. Has your vet tried a tranquilizer to examine him?
Your veterinarian would know their prices. They are different at every hospital. Have you talked to your vet about starting on Fluoxetine just to try it? This medication is used very frequently in Vet Med for behavior problems. I would talk to your vet about this and then get him neutered. You could also talk to a trainer after he is on some medication (Prozac)
You are welcome, hope you find a solution!
