Stress of Pets for Christmas

Stress of Pets for Christmas

The gifts, the meals, the visits, the brothers-in-law … if for us it can be stressful the Christmas holidays, as it is not going to be for our pet: changes of habits, strangers at home or visit to new environments. How can we avoid this stress to our pet or what to do when he already has it?

January is a month in which consultations about behavior in veterinary clinics abound and most of these problems are due to Christmas stress. Changing the daily routine of walks and meals can be very important for a dog. Visits that not only happen but stay to eat, can be very difficult to tolerate for a cat and this ends up causing anxiety.

We can detect this anxiety in our dog when it barks more than necessary, or it runs through the house more nervously or even urinates or defecates where it should not. In the case of cats, we can detect it when we see it appear in places in our house that we may not know.

How to avoid the stress of our pets for Christmas?

In order to avoid the stress of the holidays to our pet, we must try to follow the routine of walks and meals without changing much the schedules or the times of walk. If our pet is accustomed to being alone for a few hours it is not necessary to carry it always on its back, for a few hours it can be at home with its environment and its tranquility.

It is recommended to use a natural anti-anxiety treatment with a tryptophan and vitamin B complex product, as both help synthesize serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, a molecule that communicates one neuron with another, and that its deficiency in the brain causes states of anxiety and depression. With the supplement in the diet of this amino acid and vitamin B, we increase serotonin and we can avoid the state of anxiety.

Christmas should be happy for everyone, also for our pets. They must participate in the festivities but in their own way, not ours to avoid general stress. Another day we talk about nougat … can you eat a little?
