If this is the state of you

Congratulations, then

Happy mention of post-Holiday syndrome

You think you’re the only one suffering in silence?

No! And your pets

They have post-holiday blues too!

Because of the long holiday

It’s so nice to spend every day with you

After the festival, however, it is difficult to adapt to the change of the master to work

Overeating and being frightened during the holidays

Some adverse reactions occurred

Maybe it’s a lack of energy or appetite

They will even become unfamiliar with you, timid…

They call it “Post-Holiday pet syndrome.”

Symptom 1: Separation Anxiety

The happiest dog is the dog with the daily company and care of the shoveler, thinking: the owner can always play with me, comb my hair, take me out, nap together, every day is not separated, really too happy! But why did the master suddenly leave me so early in the morning recently? Did not think that happiness is always short, no master’s company, really not happy!

Suspected symptoms:

When the owner leaves, he or she will bark and become irritable or upset or depressed.


Walk the dog for a little longer in the morning and evening, hug him or her more, let him or her feel your love for him or her, play chase games with him or her before going out, put some toys and clothes with your taste, let him or her feel at home.


Suspected symptoms:

Acting strange to their owners, meowing more frequently, hiding more alone, decreased appetite, excessive licking of hair, and spending more time grooming themselves.


By enriching the cat’s daily life to strengthen his/her anxiety disorder, for example, placing a cat climbing frame in the cat’s favorite position, such as by the window, where the cat is curious about the outdoor environment, so that the cat can patrol the outside of the window when resting on the cat climbing frame. Cats also like to grind their PAWS, which can help them stretch their muscles and burn off energy, which can enhance the fun of their daily life.


Symptom 2: Mental Tension

Holiday home will visit some friends, relatives or family visit, the noise of the crowd broke the pet always immersed in life, a lot of different smell between nose, pets will also feel uncomfortable, again in a few naughty bear children playing, especially for a timid cat and the dog dog, it will be very afraid to hide, under this kind of environment influence, Pet mental state will become particularly sensitive, even after the end of the long vacation, the pet is still careful every day, hearing the sound of opening and closing the door, will be scared to hide.


Suspected symptoms:

Become timid and sensitive, not close to people, do not want to go out, easily nervous and afraid.


Increase the free activity space for pets, increase the opportunities for pets to contact with different things, and gradually get used to the stimulus sources from the surrounding environment.

However, cats and dogs have different adaptability to the environment. Dogs are more adaptable, and with the dependence and trust of their owners, they will adapt to the presence of stimuli more quickly, and the fear will gradually disappear.

However, cats are more prone to stress on stimuli, so it is necessary to control the frequency of external stimuli and prepare safe places where cats like to hide to increase their sense of security.

At the same time, it is also necessary for the owner to often accompany and play with the cat to enhance its adaptability. For example, playing with the cat to tease the cat every day can not only exercise the cat’s muscles and bones, but also make the cat relaxed and happy.

Symptom 3: Gastrointestinal Discomfort

In the holiday always indulge in a lot of food and drink, see TA sa jiao sell a lovely kind of meng, shovel excrement officials always cannot help cast feed a little snack to eat, did not think of an inattentive to eat much! Such irregular and unhealthy eating after the holiday will easily lead to gastrointestinal disorders in pets.


Suspected symptoms:

Vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, lethargy


If the gastrointestinal discomfort is serious, to see a doctor as soon as possible, you can let the doctor prescribe some medicine to regulate the stomach, followed by more exercise for pets, through the interaction of muscles and nerves, to adjust their biological clock. The most important thing is to restore regular diet, regular and quantitative feeding, not too much, not too little, to ensure balanced nutrition intake, with pet food as the staple food.


To cure the “post-Holiday syndrome”, it is necessary to maintain a regular life and a healthy diet in the daily life of pets, appropriately increase the external stimuli pets will encounter in life, to help pets become brave and powerful!
