Dr. Lisa Lippman knows firsthand how much extra time pet parents have spent with their pets during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a dog parent, New York City veterinarian, and Instagram influencer with over 159k followers, she’s hearing from pet parents daily about their concerns as the country shifts to reopening.

As U.S. restrictions ease and people start transitioning to their “normal” lives and activities, pet parents also have to adjust to spending less time at home with their beloved pets they’ve grown so close to.

A new survey is shedding light on some of the biggest pet parent anxieties around this once-in-a-lifetime transition. Now more than ever, dog and cat owners are looking for advice on leaving their pet home alone more often and how to relieve stress through pet care solutions that help pet owners and their furry friends adjust to their new day-to-day routines.

Join me in a recent interview with Dr. Lippman

as she was able to share with Michigan Mama News her perspective about this “new normal” as a veterinarian and a pet parent. of She also provided solutions to help ease the transition for pets, such as:

  • How pet parents can prepare to spend longer periods of time away from pets
  • How to recognize signs of a stressed pet when returning to work or going on vacation
  • How to simplify pet care and streamline pet parents’ routines

Dr. Lippman also announced a special social media contest

encouraging pet parents to share their favorite video or photo of their pet. The contest aims to help pet parents focus less on the stress of leaving their pet home alone and more on the reasons they love coming home to their four-legged pals each day. Winners will receive 12 weeks’ worth of pet care services to help ease the transition, which may include dog walking, doggie daycare and more.
