I really am not sure how to explain this but it concerns me slightly I have a 2yr old Maltese cross he is very affectionate very caring and of course loves a lot of attention there are 3 adult in the house of course he loves us all but has a special affection for the younger adult who does give him attention but sometimes when he is doing social things computer etc he doesn't get that attention and probably feels his being ignored and shows a little sadness he does get over it I myself am wheelchair bound and limited to the attention I can give him he is well aware of this he does get attention from the other adult member I am concerned he may get depressed sometimes he eats well

Yes there can be a problem like this because of parent leaving for work, loneliness,or you just said that the loss of a companion, attention. So the question is how can we prevent depression in our pet? Here is the good news that many pets can overcome depression on their own. Offer them more attention as possible to you one by one if you don't have full time. Keep them engage with regular activities. If your think they experiencing depression due to the loss of companion, then get another pet which convenient to you.
