Stress In Dogs

Being exposed to stressors in their environment can increase a dog’s risk to health issues. Here are important tell-tale signs that your dog is stressed out so you can step in and diffuse the situation.

 

  • Stress caused by other dogs

When a dog feels threatened by a more dominant dog, he displays body postures to show the other dog that he is not a threat or that he is prepared to attack if he is backed into the corner.

 

  • When a dog is taken outside his comfort zone

A dog may display signs of distress when he is in strange surroundings, such as a trip to the groomers or to the vet.

 

  • Separation anxiety

Dogs that are left alone for long periods of time without nothing to do can develop separation anxiety and may engage in undesirable behaviors.

 

  • Change in routine

Dogs are creatures of habit and any sudden change in their daily routine can be an important cause of stress.

 

Don’t hesitate to talk to your London, ON vet if you have any concerns and/or issues about your pet’s behavior.
