Minimising Stress Post Lockdown

  • Milton Keynes Veterinary Group
    Many pets and their owners have had their normal routine disrupted over the past few months. As you find yourself returning to work after several weeks at home, you may find your pet starts to show signs of separation anxiety and potentially adverse behaviour patterns. As a veterinary practice, we expect there may be a rise in behavioural issues in pets, with separation anxiety being the number one contributing factor.

    Unfortunately for behavioural problems, there is no quick solution but you can help by using a combination of:
    • Training Programmes
    • Environmental enrichment
    • Pheromones
    • Pharmaceuticals
    Training and the environment are especially important in resolving behavioural issues, particularly for separation anxiety. If over the last few months you have spent more time at home than normal, your pet will have become accustomed to this extra time with you.

    Here are a few ideas to help your pet when you leave the house in preparation to when you may return to normal routine:
    • Increase the time you are spending away from your pet gradually
    • When you leave the house give your pet a safe toy to keep them distracted
    • When you return home, make sure you greet your pet in a calm manner
    • Leave clothes that you have recently worn as a comfort for your pet
    • Make sure your pet still gets regular exercise and play time
    • Create a safe place for them to reside when you are not at home
    What are pheromone replacements?

    Pheromone replacements for dogs are a synthetic replication of the dog appeasing pheromone that is naturally released by the dog’s mother to provide comfort and reassurance. There are also pheromone replacements for cats which is a synthetic replication of the feline facial pheromone when they rub their face on people, furniture, doorways and other objects.

    We have different pheromone products available at Milton Keynes Veterinary Group, please contact us if you would like advice and which may be suitable for your pet. These remedies are available over the counter.

    Through a combination of both behavioural training and pheromone replacements you can help your pet adapt to their new normal.

    Happy World Donor Day

    Yesterday we celebrated World Blood Donor Day and our absolutely amazing blood donors.

    We just want to thank them all and their humans for doing such a wonderful thing.

    We have our amazing doggy donors who regularly donate to the Pet Blood Bank and also some fantastic feline donors who are always there when we need them!

    The Pet Blood Bank made this lovely video from clips sent by owners of their wonderful doggy donors.

    We would love to see pictures or videos of your happy heroes.

    Happy World Blood Donor Day Everyone – You are amazing.

    Happy World Blood Donor Day! 🩸 Today we’re celebrating World Blood Donor Day by saying a huge thank you to all of you and your wonderful dogs who donate blood! 🐶 You really do make such a huge difference. These are just some of the fantastic dogs who donate. They may look like regular dogs, running around and enjoying life, but these dogs have also helped to save lives 👏Could your dog be a lifesaver too?

These breeds include Airedale Terriers, American Bulldogs, Border Collies, Boxers, Dobermans, Dogue de Bordeaux, English Bull Terriers, Flat Coated Retrievers, German Shepherds, Greyhounds, Lurchers, Old English Sheepdogs, Pointers, and Weimaraners. Dogs also need to weigh over 25kg, be between 1 and 8 years old, and be fit and healthy.To find our more and register your dog as a lifesaver, please visit our website www.petbloodbankuk.org. We’d also be so grateful if you shared this post to help us spread the word. Thank you ❤️
