Happily Enjoying Crate Time
is Healthy for Your Dog
If your dog has separation anxiety, I would recommend treatment for that as soon as possible. Basically, what is happening in the mind of a dog with separation anxiety is that they are having panic attacks while the owner is not present. This can result in all the same issues that chronic stress can have on people, including immunosuppression (which leaves them open for infections) and stress colitis.
