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.

    A Milton Keynes Vet Group Update – Behind Closed Doors

    Milton Keynes Veterinary Group
    We have been working extremely hard to get our surgeries ready for when we can invite our clients back into the building!

    Our reception desk now has protective screens and we will have separate waiting bays for our clients to wait in.

    We have clear 2 meter markings on the floor to help people distance themselves from one another.

    Our amazing team have been cleaning the practice inside and out thoroughly to keep us and you safe.

    For now we ask that you continue to let us know when you are outside and use our online services as much as possible.

    We thank you for your continual co-operation and support and we look forward to inviting you back in to our surgeries as soon as we can.

    Stay safe everybody

    When to help a baby bird

    Milton Keynes Veterinary Group
    It is so lovely to start to see lots of baby birds around in our gardens at this time of year.

    Most baby birds will not need any help and can nest for a few days before they fly properly.

    When to help:
    • If a nestling has fallen please return to the nest and leave the nest well alone, mum will usually be near by but she should not be disturbed while raising her young.
    • It is possible to move a fledgling to a safer spot if needed but this should be done with care.
    • If a baby bird has been attacked by a cat they should be removed immediately and taken to a wildlife hospital.

    We are always happy to give advice over the phone on what would be the best option if you are unsure.
