One common anti-anxiety trick is to give your pet Benadryl. This method can help with anxiety but it does require you to be extremely attentive to dosing amounts and any adverse reactions, we highly recommend that you consult your veterinarian prior to giving any medication to your pet.
Toys, Treats, & Blankets
Another simple tip is to make sure that your pet has a couple of their favorite toys, treats, pillows, or blankets around to make them feel comfortable. You have to remember your pets nose is extremely powerful and familiar smells can be very comforting to them.
