Neurotransmitter Depletion

Neurotransmitter Depletion and the New Home

Scientific evidence points to several reasons for neurotransmitter depletion. Stress, genetics, lack of protein, lack of omega 3 fatty acids, lack of sleep, early environmental stressors, and trauma can all rob your dog of what they were born with. Many pets have neurotransmitter imbalances that are inherited from their imbalanced moms. These neurotransmitter imbalances are further compromised by the lack of early bonding experience in animal shelters, a puppy mill environment or other traumatic events in early life development. Even after the pet is introduced into safe and loving homes, distorted neurochemistry is still present.

Dogs are pack animals. They value the companionship of the others in their "pack" and are sometimes distressed if they are separated from it such as in single dog households where the humans are at work all day. Typical reactions when a dog is separated from the pack are barking, howling, digging, and chewing. These activities may distress humans when they need to leave dogs alone for a period of time. However, this behavior, called separation anxiety, can be overcome with training and a balanced brain.
