What Causes Stress and Anxiety in Dogs?
For owners of unhappy dogs, they might feel like "everything!" causes stress and anxious behaviour.
However, with a little observation you can identify the different primary causes of stress and anxiety in your doggo and apply the best management solutions with greatest effect.
Genuine fear of something can cause anxiety. Fear can be triggered by stimuli such as:
- people, other animals and objects
- vet visits or specific experiences like car rides
- loud noises such as storms, fireworks, banging and vacuum cleaners, etc.
Separation anxiety in dogs arises when a dog is unable to find comfort when left alone or separated from certain people. This type of anxiety can manifest into:
- destructive behaviours
- excessive barking
- urination and/or defecation
Age-related anxiety affects senior dogs and may be associated with the brain disease CCD, (Canine Cognitive Dysfunction).
Dogs with CCD experience a memory, perception and awareness decline and the lack of control and increased confusion can cause a dog to feel anxious or wary.

When to Use Stress and Anxiety Supplements
When you've identified your dog's key triggers you can use supplements to their greatest effect.
For specific triggers:
- we recommend adding a measured scoop of Stress and Anxiety supplements to their meal or yoghurt 30 minutes before that event.
- This helps your dog to be more calm and can help them disassociate the triggering event with stress.
If your dog displays anxious behaviour all of the time:
- we recommend adding Stress and Anxiety into their daily diet to help soothe and calm your dog.
- You and your pupper may also find working with a specialist dog trainer helpful in breaking the cycle of stress.
- A trainer may also recommend additional training aids such as anti-stress beds, vests and substitute items to provide added comfort.
Obsessive Itching, Scratching and Licking?
When stressed and anxious, dogs can develop physiological habits like compulsive itching, scratching and licking.
It's important to eliminate the possibility of underlying skin, coat or digestive issues before you assign this behaviour stress and anxiety, so check with your vet.
For dogs of any age or breed that worry their coat to the point of damage to fur or skin, you may want to combine Stress and Anxiety with Skin + Coat, to speed the recovery of affected areas.
Note! Excessive licking of paws can also be a sign of yeast infections, particularly for dogs on antibiotics, in which case we recommend adding Probiotics. If in doubt - always check with your vet.
