The kids are back in school and while that makes most parents ecstatic, it can make your pets left behind feel depressed. Listen HERE on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World to Ragen McGowan, a senior scientist at Purina.
She shares tips on helping our pets handle the back-to-school transition.
- Setting a typical weekday schedule in your home.
- If you’re able, hire a dog walker
- Enrich the indoor environment – mental stimulation is as important as physical exercise.
If you believe your pet has real separation anxiety, do contact your veterinarian.
