As we’ve talked about many times, our four-legged children are more like us than most people realize. And just like some humans suffer from depression, they can too.
We’re all about helping your dog live the happiest and healthiest life possible. So let’s not forget that your fur baby’s mental health is just as important as his physical health.
Depression in dogs is usually brought on by a major change or distressing event such as the loss of an owner or an animal companion. It could also be due to a change in routine or normalcy such as a child moving out of the house, a move to a new house or even just a change in your work schedule.
Depression can also be a sign of an underlying injury or illness, so it’s always best to check with your vet if you think your dog is dealing with depression.
