In dogs, stress is usually caused by abnormal physical conditions such as accidents or surgery. Long trips or changes in environment can also create stress.
Affected animals should receive 10% to 20% more food than they would be given normally. The meal should be a healthy one, supplemented with tender loving care from you, for the benefit of their mental health.
