Do you have a cat that urinates outside the litter tray?
Or maybe they are pulling out all of their hair and overgrooming?
Or do you have a bully cat that beats up your other cat? Or maybe they are redirecting their aggression towards you?
These can all be signs that your cat may be stressed, amongst many others. Many cats are sensitive to changes in the household, like new furniture, kids coming home from college, or a new pet. If we don’t recognize some of these more subtle signs of stress, the chronic stress in our cats can lead to medical conditions, like stress cystitis, urinary obstructions, and even cancer.
In this short video, we identify some obvious but also subtle signs of stress your cat may be displaying so you can identify if your cat is dealing with this condition. But most importantly, you will gain tips on how to help them overcome stress and be a calm and balanced cat again.
There are many remedies for pet stress ranging from supplements to behavior modifications. However, if you find that your pet is having extreme anxiety, please contact a veterinary behaviorist on ways to address the anxiety.
In this video, you will learn about:
Signs of stress in your cat
How you can help your stressed cat with behavioral modification techniques
Why environment is important for cat stress
By learning about how stress can affect our cats, we can modify their behaviors to reduce stress and integrate natural remedies to further reduce the stress response and prevent disease from occurring! Using multiple modalities together, we can usually avoid having to use anti-anxiety medications which can have side effects for our pets. Sometimes drugs are needed, especially if our pets are potentially going to cause damage or hurt themselves.
There are many natural remedies we can utilize to help our furry friends first.
One of the treatments we tend to use for dogs and cats includes Chinese herbal medicine. If you are not familiar with how this form of medicine works, watch our short video on how this way of medicine could benefit your pet.
