Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder in Dogs and Cats

Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

Herbal remedies to help address symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder in dogs and cats and to help increase focus, concentration and attention span.

The adrenal glands help the body adapt to stress through the release of natural steroids and hormones. With chronic stress, age and disease, the adrenals can become fatigued, affecting many bodily systems, including performance and memory. Natural supplements function as a brain tonic to provide neuro-protective support for cognitive disorder such as Alzheimer’s, dementia and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, by promoting healthy brain ecology and function, maintaining healthy concentration, focus, memory and mental alertness.

Your pet’s ability to concentrate and focus on a task is important if you are trying to train them or if they are performing in obedience or agility shows. Just like people, pets sometimes find it difficult to focus their attention and can be easily distracted, especially when they are stressed or are experience new smells and noises.  

Some pets are just hyperactive by nature and are constantly in motion, not stopping long enough to focus on any one particular thing or action. This can be incredibly frustrating for pet owners and it can make training a difficult task. It may seem like your pet never listens, easily forgets the things you are trying to teach, make frequent mistakes and have difficulty following instructions. Without concentration, your pet is unable to focus on the situation you have presented and is unable to demonstrate the memory necessary to making learning possible.

When training a puppy to sit, you are likely in front of your pet and verbally giving the command to sit while gently positioning your pet. The verbal cue acts as the stimulus, while the sitting cue is desired behavior you want associated with the stimulus.

Once in the sitting position, praise and attention reinforce and encourage the desired behavior. Rewards can be treats or a favorite toy, and because the best reward is to please you, give your pet LOTS of verbal and physical attention and praise.

If your pet cannot concentrate or is distracted, they are most likely unable to listen to the verbal command, and unable to equate the command to the desired behavior. In order for training and learning to be successful, it’s important to get and maintain your pet’s attention. Eye contact is often a good gauge of attention. If your pet is gazing about, it’s likely they are not fully focused on you or your training cues.

Concentration and attention span usually improve with age, in the case of a young puppy or kitten. Concentration is also expanded with practice as well as a reward, such as verbal or physical praise or a treat or toy. These types of rewards encourage good behavior and reinforce the desired outcome.

However, even well-trained pets are often affected by stress, anxiety, excitement and environment, which can interfere with basic concentration, training, as well as competitive training and shows.

In cases of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, herbal remedies can improve concentration, memory, and overall cognitive function, modify behavior by balancing hormone response and help to establish a basis to learn, train or compete.
