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.
Don’t let them spend the day without doing anything
They certainly sleep more, but it is not a reason to hibernate and stay in total inactivity during all winter. Continue the daily walks of the dog, vital for its balance. It is not useless either to play with your cat, if it doesn’t have the possibility to go for a walk. Staying active during this period allows them to fight against the stoutness.
Make sure that it stays in good shape
Nevertheless, a too important change in the behavior of animals and in their sleep can also be sign of depression or the consequence of a renal pathology for the cat. Do not hesitate to consult your veterinarian, whether it is for a normal consultation or for a consultation specialized in animal behavior, all the team of the veterinary clinic Eurovet from Peniscola is there to take care of your best companion.
