Re­cent stud­ies sug­gest sea­sonal af­fec­tive dis­or­der (SAD) isn’t just for hu­mans any­more. Pet own­ers rec­og­nize symp­toms of SAD in their fuzzy friends as the days get shorter and grayer. Both hu­man and an­i­mal symp­toms in­clude lethargy, de­pres­sion, so­cial with­drawal, fa­tigue, and craving com­fort foods. In­stead of hun­ker­ing down with Mr. Mit­tens and wait­ing for the sun­shine of spring, in­vest in some “day­light” or “full spec­trum” light­bulbs to mimic in­com­ing sun­light, get out­side for some qual­ity snow ex­er­cise, and make sure to give Fido ex­tra snug­gles.
