Former French President Jacques Chirac Savaged by Sumo, his Depressed Dog

By HBC Protocols January 22, 2009 0 comments

The couple’s white Maltese poodle, called Sumo, has a history of frenzied fits and became increasingly prone to making “vicious, unprovoked attacks” despite receiving treatment with anti-depressants, Chirac’s wife Bernadette said. “If you only knew! I had a dramatic day yesterday,” she told VSD magazine. “Sumo bit my husband!” Mrs. Chirac, 74, did not reveal where the former president was bitten, but said, “the dog went for him for no apparent reason.” “We were aware the animal was unpredictable and is being treated with pills for depression. My husband was bitten quite badly but he is certain to make a full recovery in weeks.” Chirac was taken to a hospital in Paris where he was treated as an outpatient and later sent home. The 76-year-old was president of France for 12 years until 2007.

Your dog no longer happy to see you? Does he/she seem a bit listless? Has he lost his appetite, energy, joy de vive? He may be depressed. That’s right, dogs experience a wide range of emotion, including depression. It can be triggered by anything, the death of a companion, change in circumstances, bad food, even too much medication. If you suspect that your canine companion is experiencing feelings of depression you need to take him to the vet for blood tests for Canine Coronavirus or Distemper. Once those viruses have been ruled out, you should try spending quality time with him; talk to him, play with him, take him on more frequent walks. Maybe even consider enrolling him in doggy day care.

Studies have shown that taking your dog to daycare eliminates behavioral issues. It also eliminates the guilt associated with leaving your dog alone all day while at work and the stress on the dog that can translate into destructive behavior. If you’ve tried all of these options and nothing seems to be pulling him out of his slump discuss the possibility of medications like St. John’s Wort or 5htp perhaps a little omega oil, to boost his feel good neurotransmitter levels. Most importantly, your pet (all of your pets) require your love and support to make it through the rough patches in life.
