The Emotional Impact of a Pet's Behavior Problem on the Caregiver - Separation Anxiety

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    Dealing with a pet that suffers from a disorder of anxiety, fear or panic often requires a bit of dedication and effort from the caregiver to help that pet rehabilitate. In addition to the possible financial impact (for behavior modification training and medical care), there are often complex social and emotional effects on the caretaker of an affected pet.  

    Join us in this roundtable discussion of the emotional impact of dealing with a pet with separation anxiety. Our panelists will discuss some of the more common challenges faced by these caregivers and some constructive ideas and tips for helping them deal with these emotions and social pressures.
