Today, some pieces of advice about the Season changes:
Your pets spend most of their time sleeping and that worries you? Do not worry, it is normal! The winter, days decrease, the darkness wins on the light: pets may live indoor, they are not less sensitive to the changes of seasons there. As a result, they sleep more than they used to during the rest of the year. It is a completely natural compensatory behavior due to the climatic modifications and to the decrease of the hours of light.
It is not always easy to understand the messages our pet tries to make us pass by its acts. The Eurovet veterinary clinic helps you to interpret them. We wanted for a long time to ignore that animals suffered too. As it could not express their pain with words, it was easier to deny its existence. And nevertheless, confronted with the pain, the animal suffers as us and changes its behavior.
