It’s that time of year again! With the turning of the leaves and crisp air comes a flurry of activity as kids begin a new school year or leave for college. The start of a new school year also means a change in your pet’s home environment, daily routine, and may also mean less overall supervision for him or her.
Changes in schedules, different people in the home, and an influx of potentially dangerous foods and school supplies can create unexpected back to school pet issues that need to be managed.
Pet Separation Anxiety
Homework, activities, and shorter days at home mean kids and families are spending less time focusing on the family pet. Many pets thrive on a schedule, and the sudden change in routine and attention can be confusing and may lead to separation anxiety. Some signs of separation anxiety include excessive chewing or scratching, barking and howling, pacing, and potty accidents in the house. Be on the lookout for unusual behavior from your furry friend.
