  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Excessive vocalizing
  • Changes in elimination habits
  • Self-mutilation (Excessive licking or chewing, lick granulomas, etc.)
  • Disobedience
  • Aggression

    If your dog is showing signs of stress and anxiety, it is extremely important to see your veterinarian to rule out medical problems. If your dog is physically healthy, your veterinarian will help you take the next step in treating his stress.
