Stress in dogs

To understand why stress can be harmful to your dog, it's important to understand what stress means. Stress is common for each of us - both you and me. When a dog or human feels threatened, their body reacts with stress. At first glance, this natural stress seems to be vital for a dog, as it puts the body on alert and mobilizes all resources to be ready for an emergency. It's like an automatic alarm button is activated, releasing adrenaline and cortisol. Similar to humans, this leads to an increased heart and breathing rate as well as an increase in blood pressure and blood sugar levels. A dog gets into tunnel vision and is often less aware of pain.

Symptoms and background of stress in dogs

There are many reasons why dogs can be stressed, such as:

  1. Separation anxiety: If the dog is left alone, he may suffer from separation anxiety.

  2. Overwhelm: Dogs can become stressed if they are confronted with too many stimuli and activities that they cannot handle.

  3. Pain or Illness: When a dog is in pain or sick, it can cause stress.

  4. Lifestyle changes: Moving, losing a family member or pet, visiting a new pet or baby can cause stress.

  5. Lack of socialization: Dogs that have not been adequately socialized may become stressed in new situations or with other dogs.

Dogs can react to stress in a variety of ways, but here are some signs you can look out for:

  1. Behavioral Changes: A stressed dog may behave differently than usual. He may become lethargic or hyperactive, isolate himself, or become overly clingy.

  2. Changes in Appetite: A stressed dog may lose his appetite or start eating unusually much or little.

  3. Changes in Sleep Patterns: A stressed dog may have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.

  4. Changes in Coat: A stressed dog may begin licking, scratching, or biting his fur.

  5. Changes in body structure: A stressed dog may change his body structure, for example by tucking his tail between his legs or laying his ears back.

It's important to note that these signs may also indicate other health or behavioral problems. If you notice that your dog is showing signs of stress, you should take him to a veterinarian to rule out other possible causes and find appropriate treatment options.
