As a pet parent, it's up to you to keep your eyes and ears open. Understanding your pet's behavior can make life easier for them, and for you, too! Big or small, changes in their day-to-day routine can be upsetting to your pet. Like their human friends, pets do not all react the same. Some cats are comfortable visiting the vet, while others cringe at the sight of a carrier! Some dogs like the attention of many people at a time, while others prefer to be on their own. Since your pet cannot "tell" you, try to keep an eye on behavioral changes. A pet who is playing less, licking or biting excessively, destroying furniture or peeing in the house is not comfortable. Talk to your veterinarian and use our resources below to better understand your four-legged friend's reality!
