Diagnosing And Treating Separation Anxiety In Dogs

Presented by

K9 Home Schooling, Michelle McCarthy, CDBC


MiVet Animal Clinic

When you’re raising a puppy or dog, there can be a parade of behavioral issues that march through his—and your—life. Separation anxiety (SA) can be one of them.

Understanding and recognizing SA will prepare you to do all you can to prevent the condition as well as to address it at the first signs. Although older dogs can develop SA, it usually affects young dogs. So, don’t dismiss this as something to worry about later, prevent separation anxiety before it starts and treat it at the first signs your dog is suffering.

We've really been enjoying getting back to the most "normal" we have been since the pandemic. We're continuing to take scheduling and biosecurity precautions to keep our clients safe.

Feel free to call us on 734-388-0102 to ask us any questions you have before your appointment.

Our lobby is open for medication pick-up, reception questions and scheduling

  • In-person appointments are available daily

  • Curbside appointments are available on Mondays and Fridays with our second consulting Doctor. We are continuing to keep one doctor seeing patients curbside due to room availability and to reduce the amount of clients in our clinic and waiting rooms at any one time.

  • Masks are optional - please feel free to let your care team know if you'll feel more comfortable with us wearing masks in the room with you

  • A limited number of urgent appointments are available daily - these are generally drop-off appointments, where your pet will stay with us for a number of hours. Your pet will be triaged by a technician immediately, then examined by the Doctor based on need between our regularly scheduled appointments

  • Technician appointments are available daily. Our Licensed Veterinary Technicians area available for questions or concerns or more in-depth appointments such as Diabetic Consults or weight check-ins

We understand that you'll likely want to meet your Doctors and may want to be present with your pet throughout their appointment - please let us know when scheduling that this is important to you and we'll make sure you're scheduled appropriately so you know what to expect on the day!

We have been LOVING seeing some of our clients back in the clinic and getting to meet those of you who we haven't been able to meet properly before. Our mask protocol is working well and we think our patients (like little Andy here) will enjoy getting to introduce their vets to their pet-parents also!

We are trying hard to make sure you know how your appointment will run prior to your visit, but please ask our team before your visit if you have any questions.

Currently, due to space and staffing, we have one Doctor per day seeing in-person appointments in the clinic:

Due to high caseloads, every day, we keep certain "drop-off" appointments available to fit in sick pets. This generally will mean that your pet will stay with us for 2-6 hours. They will be assessed immediately on arriving at the clinic and be seen by the Doctor based on a triage system around our scheduled appointments.

But what do I do when I arrive for my appointment?

Our lobby currently remains closed.

Please park and give us a call when you arrive (734-388-0102). A technician will take a brief history over the phone and go over all your questions & concerns for the doctor.

For curbside appointments, we will meet you at the front door, bring your pet into the clinic and ask you to wait in your car.

For an in-person appointment, we'll take you to your exam room!

Our experienced assistants and Licensed Veterinary Technicians will take your pet's weight and vitals, take any blood needed and perform any ancillary procedures (e.g. nail trim, anal gland expression).

Our Doctors will perform their physical exam and then discuss their exam findings and plan with you.

Whether in-person, over the phone in our parking lot or from your home, a full estimate can be talked through or emailed at any time -- and always before performing more advanced procedures or diagnostic testing.

After your visit, you'll receive a printed or emailed discharge that explains everything we talked about at your visit including any medications dispensed.

As always, please let us know if your pet has specific preferences or if there is anything in particular that you think will help make your visit run more smoothly.
