Separation Anxiety

Pets Separation Anxiety

Did you know that pets can experience separation anxiety? It could signify separation anxiety if you've noticed your dog or cat acting differently when you leave them alone. Natural Holistic Health Care in North Miami Beach helps many pets and their pet owners deal with this issue.

How Do Veterinarians Identify Separation Anxiety?

There are a few key factors veterinarians look for when identifying separation anxiety. For example, pets with separation anxiety might follow you constantly, become agitated when you start getting ready to leave or vocalize when you're gone. They might also have trouble eating or sleeping when you're not home. If your pet exhibits any of these behaviors, it's essential to take it to the vet for an evaluation.

What Treatment Options Help with Separation Anxiety?

There are a few treatment options that can help pets with separation anxiety. One option is behavior modification, which involves teaching your pet to be comfortable when you're not around. In addition, you can train your pet through things like desensitization and counterconditioning.

Another option is medication, which can reduce your pet's anxiety levels. Our veterinarian can prescribe medication that's right for your pet. Medication can be helpful, because your pet will exhibit less anxiety. Anxiety can be a vicious cycle. The less anxious your pet is, the less likely it is to destroy anything.

Talk to our veterinarian about treatment options if you think your pet might have separation anxiety. With the right help, your pet can overcome this issue and live a healthy and happy life.
