..Dr. Brian McLaughlin .............................
You’ve seen the YouTube videos, the dog destroying the couch cushions, the cat stalking and terrorizing its feline housemate…they seem funny enough until you realize these pets aren’t enjoying themselves and they aren’t being mischievous. They are stressed out and acting out. They are also reaching out for help in the only way they know how.
Life seems pretty cushy if you are one of the estimated 75 million dogs and 85 million cats in the United States. What would make a pet stressed? What are the signs? Are there long term consequences of being a wigged out Westie? What can you do about it? My guest isDr. Brian McLaughlin. He will answer these questions and reveal how a nutraceutical may make your anxious Abyssinian purr.
