SEPARATION ANXIETY

Separation anxiety is a commonly recognized problem in dogs, but far less so in our feline companions.  Working in a cat-only practice I have come across a number of patients who do have this issue, including our late clinic cat, Danny, when he stayed at Sandy's home.  

The most common complaint from owners is excessive vocaliztion when they leave their home.  Their cat may also cling to them when they are home, getting upset if their owner is out of their sight.  Some clients feel that their cats will eliminate outside the litterpan because of this.
