In the meantime, I will be reading up on this condition to determine how best to handle it. Already, we have started to shift some of the focus back on her, making an effort to spend more time walking and playing with her. In addition, my brother has started giving her mini massages which Annie always likes to get. We notice a marked difference in her body language after a mini massage. She will stretch out instead of curling up and she appears more relaxed than usual.
I'll report on this condition as we go along.
