Yes, this is separation anxiety. What is your vet prescribing for this condition so far?
Okay. The first thing I would try is a DAP collar, which stands for Dog Appeasing Pheromone. It is a collar that emits a pheromone that has a calming and soothing effect on dogs. The brand I like best is Adaptil, and here is a link:
Try that for 2-3 weeks and if it does not help then we will need to try something stronger from your vet like Prozac or Xanax. But try that first because it is less invasive and helps a lot in most cases. That's where I would start. Good luck!
