Veterinarian has tips on how to ease a pet's stress following a disaster
It's not just humans who can suffer after traumatic events like the recent Oklahoma tornadoes. Susan Nelson, a veterinarian and clinical associate professor at Kansas State University's Veterinary Health Center, says a tornado can be just as stressful on pets.
"It's traumatic on the pets, also," Nelson said. "Many people are displaced from their homes and are living in shelters that do not allow pets. Often times pets are cohabitated in a building close by."
