Can dogs get depressed with a new baby?
Beaver said major changes in a dog's life could lead to periods of depression.
Those include moving into a new home, a new spouse or baby in the household, or adding another pet.
But the two most common triggers of severe dog depression are the loss of a companion animal or the loss of an owner.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
