Hot New Pet Book Release -- Animal Madness by Laurel Braitman
We all are expected to put on a happy face here in America, but the reality is that life is fraught with suffering. Suffering and fear thereof can lead to depression, anxiety and mental illness.
If you live with an animal and are an observant sort, you likely know that non-humans suffer mentally as well as physically. Laurel Braitman noticed this in her anxiety-prone Bernese Mountain Dog. Extensive subsequent research brought her to the conclusion that animals can lose their minds just like we humans.
That's the premise of her Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves -- that nonhuman animals can suffer from mental illnesses that mirror those that humans endure. And they can recover, just like we can.
