    Default Depression in Dogs

    Not sure where to post this. There's a lot of info about this online but I was wondering if you know where I can find the best ones. It's harder to tell depression in animals as we tend to assume they're just having their bad days. I believe dogs felt the depressive times brought about by the pandemic. Or is their depression from sensing depression from humans?

    Do you know a case like this? How were you during lockdowns?

    There are lots of possible causes for dog depression. Even a change in the dog's schedule, for instance, a stay-at-home owner who takes a job, can cause a dog to get down. But the two most common triggers of severe dog depression are the loss of a companion animal or the loss of an owner.

    Signs of depression in dogs include lethargy, loss of appetite, no interest in play or walks, excessive sleeping, and withdrawal from interaction with people and other animals. If you suspect your dog may be depressed, it's important to take them to the vet for a check-up to rule out any physical causes for their behavior. If there are no physical issues, the vet can suggest treatment options such as behavior modification therapy or anti-depressant medication. It's also important to provide your dog with extra love and attention during this difficult time. Don't underestimate the serious effects depression can have on your dog's overall well-being and quality of life. Seek help and support for your furry friend to ensure they can live a happy and healthy life.
