Pets and Stress

Humans don’t have a monopoly on stress. Our pets can be affected by stress, too. A new house, time spent in a kennel, and trips to the veterinarian are just some ways our pets can become stressed. But whatever the cause, stress can be reduced by incorporating behavioral enrichment into our pets’ lives, says Dr. Melissa Bain, a professor in the Companion Animal Behavior Program at the University of California-Davis College of Veterinary Medicine.
