You may not realize it, but your dog can suffer from depression – just like you.
Dog depression affects a number of pets. Any dog is susceptible to depression, but it seems dogs showing symptoms also faced a life-changing event such as a move to a new home, change of owners, new addition to the family or another pet recently died.
There are many signs to help you identify if dog depression is a factor. When dog depression hits, one of the first things to change is a dog’s eating habits. A dog might start eating excessively, wolfing down a meal while still acting hungry. Other depressed dogs stop eating. They will nibble at their food and walk away without having finished a meal.
The energy level in a dog suffering from depression also changes. The dog lies around sleeping all day. If you try to engage the dog, he/she acts listless and shows no enthusiasm. A depressed dog prefers to be alone. He or she will go into a quiet room to avoid you. The dog might hide under a bed or behind a sofa.
When you call him/her out, they ignore you, often failing to even lift the head in response. Linked to the change in eating habits, dog depression cases usually find the dog losing a good deal of weight. Weight loss in dogs is troublesome, so keep a close eye on your dog’s size. If more than a few pounds disappear, call your vet.
