Preparing Your Pet for the “Lazy Days of Summer

Preparing Your Pet for the “Lazy Days of Summer”

FROM THE EDITOR

Snaring Summer Stressors

Summer is a popular travel season for me, as I am sure it is for many, and our furry friends are often a huuuuuge factor when we are making get-away plans.

Whether we choose to bring them along or find alternate housing during our time away, there are many things to consider regarding our pet’s overall health, comfort, and safety.  

I’m sure we have all had times when traveling with our pets caused a problem - or two, or three! That’s because the upheaval of traveling can result in disturbances in our pet’s systems.

They may not seem delicate but they are, and travel can affect pet health from digestive upset to changes in mood. Take some time to plan for your pet’s comfort; it may be another thing to add to your “to do list” but it will make the trip an easier one for your canine or feline friend.

I know I love to include my pets in my activities and travel plans and I don’t think I’m alone! But there are occasions when it’s necessary to leave our 4-legged children in the care of others.

Whether this means putting your dog or cat in a boarding kennel or leaving them with friends or family, being away from home and their familiar surroundings can lead to anxiety, depression, and other behavioral issues in pets.

Left untreated or undiagnosed, these issues can develop into lasting ailments, with cumulative negative health effects over time.

How to prepare and care for your pet while traveling

Summer is a popular travel season for many families, and furry friends are often a great factor to weigh-in when in making get-away plans. Whether pets travel along with their owner or find alternate housing during time away, there are many things to consider regarding pets’ overall health, comfort, and safety.  

Traveling with pets can pose many changes in environment, which can result in disturbances in a dog or cat’s delicate system such as digestive upsets and changes in mood. Taking some time to plan for a pet’s comfort can greatly enhance its travel experience, and eliminate some potential pitfalls.

Whether an itinerary involves a plane or car, many of the same tips for care apply. Before making arrangements, ensure that vaccinations, health certificates, and identification tags are up-to-date, and that the pet has a full supply of necessary medications. Compile a simple first aid kit with minor wound care supplies, anti-diarrhea and digestive remedies, and emergency phone numbers. Natural remedies can also be used to provide excellent support for many common conditions, without side effects.

How Your Absence Affects Your Pet

Settling separation anxiety and related behaviors

While many pet owners try to include their pets in all activities and travels, there will usually come a time when they must be left in the care of others. Whether this means putting the dog or cat in a boarding kennel or staying with friends or family, being away from home and their familiar surroundings can lead to anxiety, depression, and other behavioral issues in pets.

Left untreated or undiagnosed, these issues can develop into lasting ailments, with cumulative negative health effects over time. While minor behavioral changes may be noticed on a daily basis, extended summer travel can exacerbate an already existing problem. Therefore, it is very important to recognize the great physical and mental impact separation anxiety can have on dogs and cats, and to take appropriate action when necessary to alleviate the effects of the absence.

QUESTION

"I have a 10 month old pit bull. He is adorable, lovely, calm, friendly with people and other dogs, and has a great disposition… he is almost perfect, but when we have to leave him alone, he gets crazy! He cries, barks, howls, runs around the house, chews everything he can get, pees, poops… anyway, he creates a real madness…

We have tried lots of things-- crate, toys, walking him before we leave… even if we leave him in the car he will chew whatever, and will be against the window waiting for us. We do not know what to do… we cannot go out and have a regular life, and to find a sitter for him every time we need to go is very difficult. He spends lots of time with us, but we cannot take him everywhere.

I was thinking of giving him the PetCalm™, but honestly, I do not want to waste more time and money… we have a new business, and to make it happen, we have to go out and network—right now, that is impossible with our puppy acting like this. Thanks a lot for your time."
- Sandra
