Our pets are so good at reading our mood and comforting us when we’re sad or stressed. We can learn to return the favor.
Poor mental health is surging these days. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly 1 in 5 adults struggle with some form of mental health issue. And our pets are not immune; they are suffering with anxiety and depression just like the rest of us. Research by Guide Dogs UK reveals that nearly 75% of dogs showed signs of poor mental health in 2022.
Much like humans, an animal’s mental distress can manifest as anxiety, fear, or destructive behavior, depending on the severity of the condition. And an animal doesn’t need to experience extreme abuse or neglect to exhibit those symptoms. Sometimes a big change, such as moving to a new house or losing a loved one can trigger a response. Some dogs are even showing signs of post-covid social anxiety, with “other dogs or cats” surpassing all but “loud noises” as the leading cause of canine anxiety in 2022!
