Calming an Anxious Pet

Pet anxiety is more common than many pet parents might think. To reduce their anxiety, try and stick to a routine. There are also calming shirts, diffusers, and over-the-counter calming products such as Zylkene. By giving your pets the gift of an in-home Veterinary visit, you can save them a trip to the veterinarian’s office and take care of their health care needs in a non-stressful way

There are many situations that may trigger anxiety in pets.

  • Changes in routine, like a pet parent going back to work after a long hiatus at home.
  • History of abuse, abandonment, or neglect in a previous home.
  • New situations and noise from things like fireworks, thunderstorms, and travel.
  • Physical causes including aging, illness, or pain.
  • Separation anxiety caused by being home alone.
  • Unfamiliar places, such as the groomer, the veterinarian’s office, vacation, or moving to a new home.
  • New people or animals who may visit your home or even a new addition to the family.
