MY DOG HAS SEPARATION ANXIETY

Dogs are profoundly social animals that are genetically programmed to live in groups; therefore, alone time can be very difficult for a dog to experience. While many dogs can learn to accept being alone for moderate amounts of time, some dogs develop separation anxiety, a disorder of panic-like symptoms.

Allow your new cat and your existing pets to experience gradual positive interactions over the course of a few days. As the animals begin to demonstrate an acceptance of each other allow them to interact under your supervision.
