Military Dog PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is well-documented among American servicemen returning from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Veterinarians say animals and especially bomb sniffing military dogs who encounter noisy explosions in a war zone, may experience PTSD as well.

Fear mechanisms appear similar in humans and man’s best friend and both with PTSD may not sleep well.

Highly trained German Shepherds and other military dogs are returning home from combat duty fearful of everyone and preferring to hide than encounter people, withdrawing from society.

Only with time, loving care and learning anew that in civilian life everyone is not trying to get them do the retired military dogs have a chance of acting more social again.

The military defines PTSD as a condition that develops after a life-threatening trauma.

Victims re-experience the trauma in nightmares or vivid memories and they avoid situations or feelings that remind them of the event.

Peace , out.
