An integrated approach
to stress management

 

First, do yourself - and your pet - a favour by consulting your veterinarian. He or she can help you rule out any possible health problems that may be causing the unwanted behaviour and develop a customized stress management program for your pet.

 

Ideally, this program should include:

   
  • Behaviour modification focused on:
    • Identifying and eliminating (as much as possible) specific factors that contribute to your pet's stress;
    • Providing living conditions and routines that are comforting for your pet;
    • Teaching your pet more appropriate behavioural responses through the use of positive reinforcement (praise and rewards).
       
  • The use of a product with a calming effect to complement the behaviour modification program by:
    • Quickly decreasing the signs of stress (i.e., the unwanted behaviour);
    • Increasing the ability of your pet’s brain to adapt to change.
