Q. My husband has been in the hospital for 5 days and our beagle has started hiding under the bed and wont come out
A. I am sorry to read your husband is unwell. This can be quite stressful for a pet, to have an owner away. If possible, bring a sweater or shirt to your husband in the hospital. Have him wear it or sleep with it, if possible, then bring it home the next day. Leave it in your dog's bed. If that isn't possible, calming pheromone collars or sprays may be effective in easing her anxiety or stress.
