OCD in Dogs

Did you know dogs can have obsessive-compulsive disorder, just like people? Common signs of OCD in dogs includes spinning, tail chasing, self-mutilation, hallucinating (fly biting), circling, fence running, hair/air biting, pica (appetite for non-food substances such as dirt, rocks or feces), pacing, staring, and vocalizing. Some dogs also show aggression. If your dog displays these symptoms, see veterinarian to rule out underlying physical causes or disease. Your veterinarian may prescribe anti-anxiety medication along with a behavior modification program. We can work with you and your veterinarian to customize medications that your dog will welcome.
