A. There are a number of supplements containing b vitamins and trytophan and calming diets which can help to naturally aid his anxiety levels at being alone. Pheromone products and food based reward toys may also help. Leaving the radio on and encouraging plenty of active play time will help to improve his general wellbeing. An appointment with a behaviorist for separation issues may also help.
