Reducing Stress by Design

Additional Resource

We all know the effects that stress can have on us. Minor or even good stress, such as preparing for a hawaiian vacation, can be debilitating even though our rational self knows a vacation will be lots of fun! However, this isn’t true for our four-legged friends. Pets don’t have the mechanism to understand that being away from home could be a lot of fun; therefore, their response to the slightest change can be disturbing.
