|Something DEFINITELY happened. Something you don't know about perhaps...
In any case, start buy trying the Rescue Remedy from Dr. Bach. It is an extract of several flowers, all natural, and take the edge of anxiety away. 3 drops in 3 cc of water. You can give her up to 5 drops. Or you can put it in her drinking water. It can take a few days to work.
There is also a natural product called "Home alone" It also works well but can make your dog a little sleepy.
If this is still not enough, go see your vet. Like for people, there are som prescription anti0anxiety drugs that works very well in modifying this type of behaviour. Avoid Prozak which can have some serious side effects.
If you can break the cycle for a few weeks, she will relearn that being alone is no big deal.
If you have an opportunity to have someone check around the house several times a day and listen for particular noise, you may also find out what the source of her anxiety is...
Good luck and let us know how things go
