Fascinating TEDtalk on Animal Psychosis

Anyone who's interested in animal behavioral conditions should check this out. It's a bit long (20min), but thoroughly engaging the whole time - I thought.


That being said...there are some things I'm just not sure about. The main one being about halfway through she says something along the lines of "If you think your animal has some sort of condition they likely do" ... as someone who regularly meets dogs with 'separation anxiety' (aka not enough exercise, improper confinement without supervision, and being a teething puppy) I think self-diagnoses (or 'parental' diagnoses ) can be dangerous.
