Anxious Dogs

Anxiety is defined as the body’s reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations. It’s the sense of uneasiness, distress, or dread you feel before a significant event” by experts like Tanja Jovanovic, PhD.

By this definition, it seems pretty harmless, right? We all get anxious from time to time, and most of us, including our dogs, will rarely experience a time of zero anxiety. However, anxiety conditions occur when this level of unrest persists for extended periods of time or at times when it doesn’t make sense.

If you notice symptoms of anxiety during stressful situations, they are likely perfectly normal. However, if you notice symptoms of anxiety when you wouldn’t expect your pooch to be stressed out, it may be time to talk to your veterinarian.
