Thursday, August 16, 2018 Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section 3B Its back-to-school time and everyone is settling into their regular routines. Everyone, that is, except your pet. Suddenly your dog is pottying in the house, wont leave your side, and is destroying things it normally wouldnt touch. If this sounds like your dog, then it might have separation anxiety. Separation anxiety is a feeling of nervousness, fear, or panic that develops when a dog is unable to be in contact with his or her family. Mild symptoms are often missed by owners or often interpreted as signs that our dogs missed us. But this anxiety can take on more severe forms and is reported as the number one reason pets are surrendered to pounds. Symptoms of established separation anxiety include: Barking, whining, or howling when left alone. Destructive behaviors (e.g., chewing and clawing at objects in the home). Escape attempts through or around doors and windows, crates, or fences. Prescription and nonprescription anxiety relievers (e.g., medications, nutritional supplements, and pheromone products) can help, but should be viewed as a way of enhancing the effectiveness of rather than replacing behavioral modification techniques. Behavioral modification protocols often include recommendations like: Pretend to leave (e.g., pick up your keys or purse) but then stay or walk out the door but immediately come back in. As long as the dog remains calm, gradually increase the amount of time you stay away. When you do get home, ignore your dog until he or she is calm. Do not allow your dog to sleep in your bed. Ask someone else to do things with your dog that he or she enjoys (e.g., going for walks). Get your dog to look forward to time alone by handing out special toys (food-filled ones work well) when you leave and putting them away when you are home. If you often have a television or radio on when you are at home, keep it on when you leave. If you believe that your dog might suffer from separation anxiety, it is important to remember that he or she is truly terrified in your absence and not being bad. Punishment of any sort is absolutely the wrong response to fear and will actually make the situation worse rather than better. Effective treatment for separation anxiety involves avoiding behaviors that reinforce neediness, teaching the dog to relax, and providing positive inforcement for doing so. Diagnosis and treatment begins with a trip to your veterinarian. The Weekly Paw Print: October has been designated as Adopt A This week we salute the unsung heroes of veterinary medicine.

Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Most drugs of abuse target the brains reward system by flooding it with dopamine a neurotransmitter. Dopamine regulates emotion, motivation, and pleasure. Normal levels of dopamine compliment natural emotional and affective responses. Over stimulating the system with drugs produces intense euphoric feelings which reinforces the drug abuse behavior. When dopamine artificially increases due to drug usage, the brain naturally makes less dopamine on its own. Increasing the drug use is an attempt to gain the euphoria that was experienced when it was first taken. As the amount of the drug is increased to try and recapture the initial feelings, the body becomes more and more physically and now emotionally dependent. What was once taking drugs to feel high has now become taking drugs to stop withdrawal symptoms and the ever-present anxiety.rfntbrrftbb r br r ttf Its not fun anymore... 1801 N.
