A wide-ranging conversation with Dr. Kelly Cairns, vice president of Medical Excellence and Education at Thrive Pet Healthcare; she is based in Naperville.

Veterinary behaviorist Dr. Marie Hopfensperger, assistant professor veterinary behavior at Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine explains what to do when pets get anxious around the holidays, and offers ideas about how to deal with all those guests visiting with uncertain pets.
