Then there was the year that my hermit crab got stressed by the holiday noise and decided to leave home. He crawled out of his shell and found that he could squeeze between thee bars of his cage in his naked state. He made a run for the front door and fortunately I spotted him before he got outside or got stepped on. The experience taught him that he could make a getaway if he left his shell behind and a whole new cage had to be constructed to keep him contained. Did you ever see a naked hermit crab?
Anyway, you get the idea. Holidays can be stressful. It sounds like my sister was the most stressed but pets can be, too. We have a super idea if your dog stresses over the holidays. Chewy sent us a wonderful product called Nutramax Cosequin Calm Chewable Tablets.
Chewy sent us a bottle of Cosequin Calm at no cost to us in exchange for our honest opinion.
