It’s estimated that nearly one in four dogs are upset by car travel and as many as 80% show an undesirable response to strangers. That can make the holiday season a lot more stressful than many pet owners realise.
YuCALM Dog is all about helping dogs to live a normal, happy life. There’s no sedation and the supplement is completely natural. In July, Lintbells launched its Happy Dogs, Happy Days campaign to provide practices with the tools they need to inform clients about the issues.
Despite the joyful vibe, the campaign has a serious purpose, as Lintbellls’ Marketing Executive Gemma Cunningham explains, “All too often the signs of stress or anxiety in pets go unrecognised or are misinterpreted by pet owners. That means that dogs don’t get the help they need at an early stage, with the potential for them to become sensitised to triggers and develop phobias. The consequences are much harder to manage and involve significant distress both for pets and their owners. We want to help practices play a role in avoiding this kind of escalation by providing support at the right time.”
There’s lots of information about Lintbells products and campaigns available at www.lintbellsvet.com, including some CPD and revision that will help the practice team manage canine anxiety effectively. At London Vet Show Lintbells can be found at stand U50.
