Pet Anxiety and the Nutrition Connection

Nearly 30 percent of dogs exhibit signs of anxiety, which may include excessive barking, trying to escape, destructive behaviors, separation issues and even aggression.  Alleviating pet anxiety through diet and nutrition is one tool many pet parents overlook. In this class we will discuss how anxiety and stress affects the body, specific nutritional needs a pet may have including supplement and dietary recommendations as well as the importance of exercise and brain stimulation tools in the alleviation of anxiety.  This class is for people to attend only, no dogs.  Instructor: Lori Wells.  TrailBlazer Pet Supply, 752 Mangrove Avenue (in the Safeway shopping center).
