Stress is one of the primary reasons for veterinary visits, and post-pandemic, is even more prevalent in dogs. Pressure can be from many factors, including separation, past trauma, loud noises, veterinary visits, grooming or kennel visits, and even picking up on stress in their people. Understanding and addressing stress in pets, both from a behavioral and a calming standpoint, is the most effective combination for stress mitigation.
