The month of April marks Stress Awareness Month; a time that promotes the awareness of modern stress challenges and helps individuals find solutions to battle their stress. Stress affects everyone and what people may not know is that stress also affects our pets. A recent survey reported that more than 29 percent of dogs suffer from fear and anxiety, which is why ThunderWorks, the makers of the ThunderShirt, is encouraging all pet owners to recognize and find solutions for stress in their pets.
“Excessive panting or yawning, destructive behavior such as chewing or clawing, avoidance behavior, pacing, unsettling demeanor and indoor elimination are among some of the most common and notable signs of pet anxiety and stress,” said Phil Blizzard, CEO of ThunderWorks. “It’s important to look for these signs in your pet and determine the best ways to treat the problem.”
ThunderWorks offers the following solutions to help pet parents recognize and treat potentially stressed or anxious pets:
