Stressed Out Pups

Saturday, February 1, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

Just like people, dogs can become stressed out. New people or animals in the household, travel, confinement, owner separation and fear of thunderstorms are all common causes of canine stress. Symptoms may range from mild whining or a loss of appetite to inappropriate eliminations and all out panic attacks.  Nervous dogs may tremble, bark and even show destructive behavior. If your dog appears to be stressed out, your veterinarian could rule out physical problems, and if necessary, prescribe anti-anxiety drugs and behavior modification techniques. Maintaining a regular schedule of feeding, long walks and playtime can also go a long way to keeping your  dog’s stress at bay.

Remember , your pets count!
