Pet Holiday Anxiety Solutions

Do the holidays cause anxiety for your pet?

Do the holidays cause anxiety for your pet? Many dogs are nervous around new people and loud parties. Make sure that your dog has a "safe zone" during the holiday. He or she should be able to get away to a quiet room or their kennel to escape the activities. You may also want to consider a "Thundershirt". This tight fitting garment was originally designed for dogs that have thunderstorm anxieties, but has been shown to help dogs with a variety of other anxieties as well. The garment is akin to "swaddling a baby". It is snug and gives the dog a sense of security. Check out their website thundershirt.com for more information. These shirts can be purchased at Westgate Pet Clinic in Minneapolis, and we have a money back guarantee!
