If your previously house trained dog or cat is suddenly peeing where they aren’t supposed to, it could be a sign of something more troubling. The team at Mobile Vet M.D. wants to take a moment to discuss house soiling in pets and what you can do to manage the issue.
House Soiling in Cats
Urinating outside the litter box is a common problem among cats and is one of the main reasons cats are surrendered to shelters and even euthanized. There are so many different causes for the behavior, many of which are relatively simple to fix.
Everyone has dealt with fear and anxiety. In small doses, these emotions can help keep us safe and protect us from danger, but when these feelings overtake our lives, it can be problematic.
Unfortunately, our pets are no different. Anxiety in pets manifests differently than in humans, but the physiological effects are the same – nearly every system in the body is negatively impacted by long-term anxiety. Helping your pet manage their anxiety is key to their health and happiness.
