Depressed Dogs, Anxious Cats

Dogs can suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders.

Like humans, animals can become depressed and anxious and can suffer from OCD and PTSD. Laurel Braitman explores the topic of mental health, therapy, and recovery in the animal kingdom. Her new book Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves explains how and why animal minds go awry and the ways their disorders resemble our own.
