cats and dogs with special needs
ST. CHARLES, Mo. (June 13, 2013) – Problem behavior is a top reason for the relinquishment of cats and dogs by their owners.1 However, knowing what options exist to address the problem and seeking counsel from a veterinarian can help owners resolve unwanted behavior and restore the special human-animal bond.
 

Pet behavioral issues may start early after a cat or dog is adopted or born into a home, or may occur after any change in routine. Changes or events that may seem minor to owners can be a source of considerable stress for pets, including the introduction of a new cat and dog into a household, having guests over, boarding, loud noises such as thunderstorms or fireworks, or traveling.

  “Stress is a common issue for cats and dogs that can negatively affect a pet’s mental and physical health and as a result frustrate owners,” said Steve Dale, certified animal behavior consultant and host of Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show. “Any change big or small can be unsettling for pets, so it’s important to pay close attention to their behavior to identify if they appear stressed – and sometimes those signs are subtle.” dog  

 

For cats, common signs of emotional imbalance include urinating in inappropriate places, excessive vocalization, destructiveness, aggression toward people and other animals or obsessive grooming.  Similarly, common signs in dogs include compulsive destruction, excessive licking, hiding, or excessive barking or whimpering.
