When their safe home environment changes, pets can get stressed. With the holiday season just around the corner, this can be a big reality to your beloved fur babies. Whether people are flocking to your home for the holidays or you’re the one doing all the travelling, your pet will feel this change. Reactions to stress can vary from over-excitement to physical manifestations (such as the common feather picking seen in birds).
Here are some tips to keep your pets calm and relaxed during the Christmas season:
Pet stress is easy to manage, especially with a little help from other people. Just one thing to keep in mind: it is important to supervise interactions between your pets and people they do not know – particularly children. If you feel that being exposed to too many people is starting to stress your pet, take them aside and give them time to relax and calm down.
We hope you and your pets enjoy the upcoming holidays!« Previous Next »
