Like humans, dogs too can suffer from mild to profound anxiety and fears. As a responsible pet parent or caretaker, it is our job to calm our precious pets when they seem to be having those anxiety pangs.
Anxiety in mutts can be caused by a variety of factors emotional and physical stress to mention two. It is the fear of anticipating future dangers or unhappy situations. Dogs exhibit anxiety in a variety of ways. They may show symptoms of withdrawal and reduced activity, an escapist behaviour or uncalled for excessive barking and sudden panicky behaviour, too aggressive or passive behaviour towards other dogs and strangers, or unwarranted physical ailments.
When you are dealing with an anxious pet it is important to do it right. A calm and familiar environment, loving support and attention, a soothing massage and enjoyable physical activity can go a long way in healing panic-stricken dogs. It is important that you don’t medicate the dog on your own. Approaching a qualified pet doctor would do a lot of good to your ward.
