ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Pet Talk is a new weekly segment airing during 7@four each Wednesday. You can send us your questions through our website and ask professionals what you should do for your pet.

Elizabeth from Woodlawn asked:

“My dog is a 2 1/2 year old miniature Australian shepherd. He is extremely anxious when we leave him at the house. I talk to him, play soothing music and other things, but he visible shakes and cries so much. He also has various habits; for example, he scratches the carpet excessively before lying down. He is an amazing dog. We love him so much and would do anything to help him. We have tried calming chews, etc., and those did not work either.”

We spoke to Julie Rickmond with the Roanoke Valley SPCA and she touched on what to do in this type of situation.
