Fall May Drive Separation Anxiety In Pets

sad petU.S.veterinarian says, pets that have spent more time with family during summer may get separation anxiety, as children prepare to go back to school.

Pet dogs and cats with post-summer stress may possibly exhibit abnormal behaviors like drooling, scratching doors, non-stop barking, meowing, howling, compulsive licking or grooming, tearing up furniture and soiling pet owner’s belongings, reports Bill Craig, a doctor of veterinary medicine and chief medical director of Purina Care Pet Health Insurance.

Dogs are naturally social animals and they are particularly sensitive to loneliness during fall. Therefore, to prepare your pets for fall, it is advised to wean pets in a new schedule in more positive way with praises and treats for good behavior.
