Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For


Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

Despite all the TLC that they are receiving, your furkid may be experiencing some levels of stress. This can be attributed to everyday acts such as leash pulling or abruptly waking your canine from its deep slumber. Here are some six tell-tale signs to look out for to determine if your dog is in distress.

Fur Loss Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

Just like us, dogs experience hair loss when under chronic stress. If your pet has been shedding a little more than usual or if you spot chunks of fur littered across the floor, it may be a good time to take a trip down to a vet in Singapore.

Hyperactivity Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

If your dog is constantly restless or is being relatively more aggressive, chances are that its stress levels are on the high side. However, don’t worry just yet, as your furkid is probably searching for an outlet to release some of the built-up tension. Keep calm and consult a respected behaviourist to explore ways of managing your dog’s stress.

Stereotypies Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

Stereotypies are little tics your dog may be suffering from – ranging from tail nibbling to continuous barking. This form of compulsive disorder may affect your dog’s daily activities, and is often a response to stress or poor welfare. To reduce stress, increase the duration of your daily walks and consider making some new fur pals at local pet events.

Increased Sleep Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

When we’re feeling under the weather, simple tasks like getting out of bed can seem really difficult. Naturally, a dog’s response to stress will also be to sleep more and appear extra lethargic. Do visit your vet as this may be a sign of something more serious, such as diabetes or heart problems.

Reduced Appetite Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

A symptom that comes hand in hand with lethargy, reduced appetite can be a serious issue – especially for bigger dog breeds. If your pet no longer comes running at the sight of its favourite treats, it may be time to seek professional help.

Excessive Panting Doggy Distress: 6 Stress Signs to Look Out For

Dogs pant to cool down, a sight that is not uncommon on our sunny island. However, if your dog is panting even when it is not expending any energy, this may be a major tell-tale sign of stress – especially if the panting comes with an occasional whine or cry. So do keep an eye out for abnormal breathing behaviours in your furkid!
