Now that the 4th of July has passed us by, I can reflect on the craziness of our community with all the fireworks. It was a rough weekend for our 4-legged family members! I was watching TV this morning seeing all the creative ways people protected their noise phobic pets from fireworks over the weekend. One of the brilliant ideas I saw was a photo of a golden retriever with his owner’s head phones on watching a computer screen! I wish I had thought of that to share with my clients last week. Noise phobia is just one of many behavioral issues our pets can experience. One of the more common behavior issues I see in veterinary medicine involves separation anxiety. This issue can sometimes be easily overlooked and we do not realize how much our pet is suffering. If you think your pet is experiencing anxiety in any form, do not hesitate to call for a consultation. Sometimes there are easy ways to address this issue to help give relief a pet. Let us know if you have any questions on this topic!
