WHAT IS DOG SEPARATION ANXIETY?
Leaving your pet home alone is never easy, but for many pets, separation from their families can cause severe anxiety and real problems. Veterinarians and trainers call this condition “separation anxiety.” The consequences can be severe for your pets, your family and your property.
SYMPTOMS OF SEPARATION ANXIETY IN DOGS
According to our surveys and other sources (such as the ASPCA), separation anxiety affects young and old pets alike, and can include a wide variety of symptoms such as indoor urination, defecation, destruction of furniture, vocalization, chewing, digging, escape attempts and other anxious behaviors. It’s heartbreaking to know that your dog or cat is suffering while you are away, but separation is an unavoidable reality for most families.
