5 Tips For Understanding Anxiety In Dogs

Is your dog anxious or acting up? Here are some tips on what to look for:

  • Mild Anxiety: May include trembling, tucking of tail or withdrawal
  • Medium Anxiety: May include hiding, reduced activity, and attempts to pull away from the situation
  • Panic: May include active escape behaviour
  • Drooling, diarrhea or vomiting
  • Licking and biting that causes lesions

 

Causes of Fear and Anxiety in Dogs

  • Any illness or painful physical condition increases anxiety
  • Aging changes that are associated with the nervous system
  • Fear from a previous bad experience
  • A history of inability to escape from the stimulus causing the anxiety, such as being locked in a crate
  • Separation anxiety from a history of abandonment, multiple owners, rehoming, or prior neglect. 

Diagnosis of Fear and Anxiety in Dogs

 

Your vet will first want to rule out other medical conditions that might be causing the behaviour,

 

If your vet diagnoses a simple fear, anxiety, or phobia, he will make recommendations based on your individual dog, the fear trigger, and types of behavioural techniques that can be used to alleviate your dog's fears and anxieties.

Dogs need exercise, on a daily basis.

Sometimes creepy. Often funny. So why do dogs howl? A throwback to when they were wolves? Yes, naturally.

#1. Live a lean life. Obesity is the No1 health risk for dogs, and can play a significant role in shortening your pet’s life.
