Anxiety is the most common disorder among people in the United States, but did you know it’s common in pets, too? Anxiety is a scary situation, but NJ Pet Supply wants to do all we can to help. That’s why we carry brands like HomeoPet, Comfort Zone, Pet Naturals, Virbac, Dr. Harvey’s, Espree, ThunderWorks, and more - all of which create products specifically designed for pet anxiety relief.
Anxiety in pets can be caused by several factors. These include boredom, lack of exercise or play, health problems and pain, trauma, changes to their daily routine, the addition or loss of a new pet to the family, aging, loud noises etc. The number one reason would be separation anxiety. Your dog, cat, or other pet loves you so much that they get worried every time you leave! Symptoms of anxiety that your companion may be showcasing include, but are not limited to, changes in appetite or weight, excessive barking, meowing, or vocalizing, more or less use of the bathroom, disobedience, aggression, panting, shaking, destructive behaviors like chewing, and more.
There are many approaches you can take to treating the disorder, but you can start right with NJ Pet Supply’s brands and products. HomeoPet provides a safe, gentle, all natural medicine for dogs, cats, birds, and virtually any other small animals. Just through a simple liquid dose directly into their mouth or incorporated in their water or food, your pet can receive quick anxiety relief. We also have other oral products that work similarly, such as bite sized dog chews, oral tablets, herbal supplements, etc. Other supplies, such as from Comfort Zone and ThunderWorks, use scent diffusers, sprays, and plug-ins that release drug free, odorless vapors mimicking the natural pheromones of your pet, making the environment feel safe and familiar. Thunderworks also creates their signature ThunderShirts. ThunderShirts are calming wraps for cats and dogs that apply gentle, constant pressure to the body. It has proven to be over 80% effective in helping during fireworks, thunderstorms, travel, vet visits, separation anxiety, and more. Plus, they come in a range of sizes and stylish, cute designs that will help your little friend to look and feel their best! You can also use our relaxing shampoos and conditioners that come in fresh scents (like lavender and chamomile!) that perfect your pet’s calm, or you can pick up one of our many soft, plush toys or durable chew toys as cuddle buddy or chewing outlet for extra stress relief.
NJ Pet Supply understands how difficult it can be for both people and pets to experience anxiety, and while it’s important for you to find the proper treatment and medications, we trust that our anxiety and stress relief products are sure to be of help.
