We’ve had an awful lot of togetherness lately. People’s reactions to the lockdown provisions differ wildly, but we feel confident when we say that for most of the nation’s pets, all of the extra walks, snuggles, and playtime over the past several months have been delightful.

Pets thrive on a daily routine, and as these orders have lifted (and reinstated, and lifted again in some areas), it’s natural for them to be affected. At Summeridge Animal Clinic we are experts at helping our patients and their family deal with separation anxiety in pets, and we have some strategies and tips designed to ease this transition for your furry friend.

The same is true for pet owners now, when there are several fad diets that profess to be the best and most nutritious for our fur friends.
