I enjoy and appreciate working with Pet World Insider to spread my message of holistic pet health to an vast on-line audience of concerned dog and cat owners.
Natural Pets TV is a new series of YouTube videos from Pet World Insider dedicated to the promotion of the health of our canine and feline friends. In episode three of Natural Pets TV: Cat Edition, Pet World Insider’s Robert Semrow, Natura Petz Organics’ Heidi Nevala, and NoBowl Feeding System’s Dr. Liz Bales (my fellow Penn Vet alum), and I team up to discuss feline anxiety.
You may not know it, but your cat may be prone to anxiety and behavior changes. Anxiety can manifest in a variety of ways and if it goes unmanaged your cat can suffer serious health concsequences. Fortunately, there are many behavioral, environmental, and lifestyle modifications cat owners can make to reduce their feline friend’s anxiety. Additionally, medications, herbs, and supplements can have an antianxiety effect when paired with behavior modification techniquies.
