Anxiety is a normal emotion in perceiving “future danger”, and it is important for survival. However, some animals can have inappropriate levels of anxiety, when there should be low levels of anxiety, or sometimes we need to calm “normal” anxiety. If your animal is anxious there are things that may help from mild no medical things through to very serious medications to modify brain network chemicals/patterns.
This article is about things that may help before seeking major medical treatment (either with your vet or a specialist behaviour consultant)
The range of possibilities can also be used if your pet is anxious about going to the veterinary hospital.
