Severe weather season is here and most people can have a fear of storms, but animals can also have the same fear.  Amber Talbot, Director at Paws N More says dogs and cats can experience anxiety during storms.  She says when your pet is experiencing anxiety, to not give the animal attention while they are going through the experience.

Talbot says this will only promote the behavior.  She advises putting your animal in a safe and confined space and carry on with your normal routine.

Talbot says over time pets will adapt to a more stressful situation by following these steps.  If you would like more information, contact Paws N More.
