Stress and Anxiety
Support Your Cat & Reduce Their Stress
Stress causes several changes in the hormonal system and can directly affect the production of adrenaline and cortisol, the stress hormones involved in the “fight or flight” response. This is natural in the short term, but long-term can lead to other health and behavioral problems. Ultimately, stress can affect the immune system and if your cat is already sick, adding stress can make the treatment even more difficult.
The first symptoms of stress and anxiety in cats are usually exhibited as behavioral issues. Sometimes being around other animals or people they are unfamiliar with can cause cats to become anxious or aggressive.
NHV Natural Pet Products offer a wide range of natural remedies for cat anxiety made from human-grade quality herbs. These supplements for cat anxiety can be an important part of helping your pet live healthier for longer naturally.
