Anxiety and PTSD Dogs

Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is a feeling of being nervous or worried at times. Individuals with anxiety disorder tend to experience tireless, uncontrolled, unrealistic worry about everyday things and exaggerated worry and tension, while often expecting the worst, even when there is no visible reason for concern. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental problems that affect children and adults.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Traumatic experiences can be difficult to handle and one can adjust, cope for a while, and get better. If the symptoms, such as nightmares and intense anxiety, flashbacks, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event, get worse or last for months to years, this might be a sign that a person has PTSD. 

PTSD is a condition that is caused by a terrifying event, such as threatened death, sexual violation, war, accident, etc. This illness is disruptive to the person's life. PTSD is diagnosed through a psychological evaluation and must meet criteria set by the American Psychiatric Association.
