Similar to us, dogs can experience stress and anxiety. Anxiety or stress in dogs are often caused by boredom, loneliness, changes in routine, aging, exposure to a new environment or people, separation from their guardians AKA separation anxiety), etc.
You just know when something is wrong with your pooch by watching their behavior, but just to be sure that it’s the stress that your dog is suffering from, watch out for these signs:
-Your dog is pacing too much.
-Your dog is whining and barking more often.
-Your dog is trembling and panting.
-Your dog is hiding or cowering.
-Your dog is shedding excessive hair.
-Your dog is avoiding or ignoring you.
Those are the ways dogs express mental or emotional stress. Usually, the go-to solution for that is medication.
Though your vet may suggest some medications to help relax your dog or reduce symptoms of anxiety, it seems that there are natural and healthier remedies that can calm your dog down.
