Back to School and Your Pet
Back To School-Kids and Pets Say, “Oh, no!”
Back to school time is a transition for students and pets alike. During the Summer, many pets become accustomed to a busier household, more exercise, attention and company. They enjoy having their families around. Yet, Summer comes to an end quickly.
As the school year resumes, the home environment suddenly shifts. Pets watch their companions leave for school and work and may be home alone for several hours each day.
The sudden change in our pets’ daily routines can cause anxious feelings and even destructive behavior. Some pets cry, bark, chew, and lick themselves excessively to express their distress and frustration. To ease this transition and comfort our pets, I recommend helping our pets naturally with calming blend and grounding blend. Apply topically or diffuse the essential oil blends two to four times daily.
