What does cat anxiety look like?

Even though cats can’t talk, their behaviors tell us when there’s an issue

Hiding

If your cat spends most of the time hidden under a bed or out of sight from the other people, dogs, cats, Roombas, etc. — it may be a sign of anxiety. At Dutch, we make sure to treat anxiety like the medical problem it is, to provide your cat lasting relief.

Fear of new places/people

If your cat isn’t a fan of going to new places or meeting strangers, fear or anxiety could be the underlying cause of their timid behavior. Our Dutch-affiliated vets will review their list of triggers and fears to develop a plan that will get to the root of your cat’s problems and create lasting change.

Fear of being alone

Sure, it’s cute when your cat wants to be by your side all day long, but do you know how to recognize signs of their clinginess veering into separation anxiety territory? Our panel of experts do. There are only 80 vet behaviorists in the entire country and at Dutch, we work with two of them to develop medication protocols to calm your cat’s anxious brain.

Meowing or yowling

Excessive meowing and/or yelling is a cry for help and a major sign of cat anxiety, and shouldn’t be ignored. At Dutch, we know that medication alone isn’t the answer. Once medications help calm the anxious brain, our pets are more receptive to training. We’ll give you the tools to implement easy-to-learn training exercises, plus environmental enrichment techniques, to create lasting change in your cat’s day-to-day life.

Destructive behavior

Can’t leave the house because your cat will tear up anything in their path? Destructive behavior is a common sign of a distressed, anxious cat. Our online consultation will help us understand your cat’s triggers and symptoms so we can begin to develop their customized anxiety treatment plan. Still have questions? Our experts will get back to you with answers within 24 hours, every time.

Urinating outside of the litter box

Did you find your shoes filled with something other than insoles? Was there an unwelcome present left in the middle of your bed? Anxiety or stress can be one cause of your cat eliminating outside of the litter box and our team of vets can help you relieve their stress so they relieve themselves where they should.
