Cat Stress Management
Managing your cats stress can be easy or difficult
depending on what is causing their stress. Some things cant
be avoided such as moving home or even decorating. You can
in some cases minimise stress, for instance when it may
involve visitors. You can keep your cat in another room till
they leave but making sure they are comfortable.
Either move what is causing the stress, away or move your
cat away from what is causing him or her the stress. If the
stress is very bad and continues, you may like to consult a
vet for help. Your vet may prescribe the likes of Clomicalm
that is used to treat anxiety and is an anti depressant.
This works well along with behavioural therapy. Your vet may
also prescribe Valium, this is a tranquilliser and can cause
your cat to become more agitated. Their are other ways to
try and de stress your cat without prescribed drugs such as:
aromatherapy, massaging, T-touch, herbal therapies,
homeopathic and even nutritional supplements.
