[NEW PRODUCT] How to help your pet’s behavior
Behavioral problems are one of the main reasons pets are surrendered to shelters. For most pets, these behavioral issues usually stem from anxiety and fear. However, just because some pets might carry out unwanted behaviors, doesn’t mean they can’t leave those behind and learn appropriate behaviors with some patience, a little extra love and care, training and calming supplements like Solliquin.
Anxiety and fear are major factors that can cause inappropriate behaviors. For pets, there are many events that can scare or stress them out. For both dogs and cats, these common causes of anxiety and fear include:
- Loud noises (fireworks, thunderstorms & construction)
- Being home alone (separation anxiety)
- Car rides
- Getting old
- New and unfamiliar people and animals
When pets are anxious or afraid of their surroundings, it’s likely they will react negatively and resort to inappropriate behaviors that they think might help the situation. Any of the above causes of anxiety can instill a negative response from pets resulting in unwanted behaviors that can be harmful to your pet, your home or even yourself. Common dog behavior issues that stem from fear or anxiety are:
- Destructive chewing
- Food guarding
- Separation anxiety
For cats, common behavior issues include:
- Destructive scratching
- Litter box problems
- Urine marking
How to help calm your pet
Calming and behavior supplements like Solliquin can be a great tool in helping your pet calm down. However, it takes much more than supplements to improve your pet’s behavior and ease their anxieties. One of the best methods to maintain your pet’s happiness is keeping them well-exercised. Not only does exercise release the “happy” chemical in the brain it also reduces any pent up energy that can turn into anxiety.
Positive reinforcement training, meaning rewarding your pet for good behavior, will help them learn the difference between wanted and unwanted behaviors. Training your pet also increases the bond between you and your pet resulting in a trusting relationship.
Other natural remedies for pets is to keep them occupied with toys and chews, playing calming music, calming pheromones, and even a good, soothing massage.
Containing all natural ingredients, like extracts of magnolia, phellodendron, theanine, and whey protein, Solliquin encourages feelings of calm and contentment. It also helps reduce any negative behaviors related to stressful and anxiety-inducing events.
Solliquin is perfect to give to pets during times of stress including traveling, meeting unfamiliar pets and people, and loud noises like thunderstorms and fireworks.
It is available in tasty soft chews for cats and small to medium dogs and available in tasty chewable tablets for medium to large dogs.
