Pet Stress At Christmas

The excitement and change of routine that Christmas often brings can be a stressful time for many pets.

This change of routine over the holiday period, eg an increase in visitors to the house, can cause distress to many animals. At Tay Valley Vets, we can offer remedial solutions to these problems, through the likes of Feliway, Zylkene and Adaptil which can help ease the tension your pet may be feeling.

A further common problem during the Winter period is the many hidden poisons that can be found in some of our traditional Christmas dishes, which have the potential to harm your pet. This includes the likes of raisins in Christmas puddings as well as chocolate. Turkey bones can also cause damage if eaten, and if feeding pets a lot of fatty food eg sausages over the festive period can cause pancreatitis.
