Just like their human counterparts, cats can suffer from post-trauma. It can be brought on through stress or exposure to an event which threatened physical harm or can even stem from a fear of abandonment. There are many signs of PTSD in cats from excessive hissing and aggressive behavior to urination and defecation throughout the home. Thankfully, post-trauma is treatable in cats. Assisi Animal Health shares 4 ways to treat post-trauma in cats.
- Secure a secluded area away from people and other pets. Create a safe-haven with a comfortable bed and some special toys. Lay a few small treats and some water out to guide the affected cat into the hiding place and reassure him or her that it is, in fact, a safe place. Having a secure place to retreat to will ensure that a cat suffering from post-trauma will have a way to remove themselves from noises and agitators that worsen stress.
- Reassure cats through scent. Cats find the scent of their humans comforting. Place a piece of clothing in the cat's special hiding spot for them to lay on. The more familiar your cat is with his or her settings, the less likely he or she is to be stressed.
- Quality play time. Exercise and play time is a stress reliever for cats. It helps establish and maintain a bond between you and your cat, as well as build trust. Play time provides an outlet for cats to release pent up anxieties and distracts them from stress triggers.
- Supplements. The use of supplements such as Omega 3 fatty acids, and melatonin, are believed to help relieve stress in cats. Always consult a veterinarian prior to administering supplements.
