Give Your Pet the Gift of Health

Will Santa be good to Fido or Fluffy? With more and more pet owners in the United States and abroad, our animals are becoming even more ingrained into our families. This holiday season; don’t forget to include your pet on your holiday shopping list! Just like ourselves, it’s important to not only give them a little pampering and TLC now and then, but also remember that holistic health can go a long way in maintaining wellness and preventing illness.

It’s also essential to consider how the holidays are affecting our pets’ health. Our pets too can get frazzled around the holidays, becoming stressed, unruly or anxious—sometimes as a result of sensing our own discomfort, or due to disruptions in their routine and environment. Managing these emotions and subsequent behaviors in our pets early on is key, as they can lead to greater health problems if left untreated.

Easy-to-implement tips on calming common holiday pet stressors

In addition to seasonal stressors, our pets can also fall victim to problems that can affect us year-round… including feeling the effects of divorce. Similar to children, pets can suffer from severe emotional upsets that can lead to self-inflicted harm.

Grooming - The Gift of Health!

How a Little Pampering Goes beyond Pretty

While you may or may not indulge your pet in couture-inspired clothing or decadent faux diamond collars, you likely still have ideas in mind for how to reciprocate for the daily loving and affection received from your pet this holiday season.

According to statistics, in the United States, there are now more dogs per household than children, and in the UK, while the human birth rate has been falling over the past decade, nearly half the population now owns a pet, says the Norwich Union. Given these numbers, it seems many can agree that pets are like our “kids”, and treated as such with special attention in the household.

Putting Seasonal Stress in its Place

Just as we get frazzled around the holidays, our pets too can become stressed, unruly or anxious—sometimes as a result of sensing our own discomfort, or due to disruptions in their routine and environment. It is important to manage these emotions and subsequent behaviors in our pets, as they can lead to greater health problems if left untreated.

The good news is that a lot can be done to make them feel more at ease.

Can Your Divorce
Destroy Your Pet's Health?

Some Say Yes... and What You Can Do

We often hear how children are negatively affected by their parent’s splitting up… but what happens when these “children” are our pets? In some cases, the effects can be the same—and can develop into stress-related health problems if not addressed and managed.

Unfortunately, since our pets cannot speak to us and express their feelings, we’re left to decipher their emotions through their actions and behaviors. Often, these physical behaviors are accompanied by intense emotions that animal behaviorist and psychologists compare to depression, nervousness, and anxiety in humans.

"Our Dalmatian, Honey, only has separation anxiousness when we take her on vacation.  If we leave her in the room alone, she barks.  She's never done this at home from day one.  Will your PetCalm™ work for her if we give it to her only when she is in a hotel room?"

- Mary


Hi Mary,

Usage of PetCalm may be varied according to the needs of your pet as well as the circumstances. 2-3 doses of PetCalm may be safely given every day given as a nerve tonic for pets. PetCalm may also be used as needed for occasional support and dosage may then be increased to once an hour for up to ten doses if necessary. Thereafter, administer two to three times daily for up to 21 days if necessary.

"For the past 8 months, our lab mix has been becoming aggressive.  He is ok with my husband, but with me, who he use to be close to, on three occasions, he's shown his teeth and growled to a point I had to go back into the house.  Today I needed to jump into my vehicle because I thought for sure he'd bite me.  What can we do? I want to put him down.  I have grandchildren who come over and I do not want him to bite anyone."
