  • Description or summary of the book: The 'fur-and-feathers Oliver Sacks' (New York Times), pioneering veterinarian Nicholas Dodman recounts his 'riveting stories' (Judith L. Rapoport, MD, author of The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing) of treating animals with all-too-human problems in this 'fascinating read for anyone who wants to know how the animal mind works' (Stanley Coren, author of The Intelligence of Dogs).Internationally renowned veterinarian Dr. Nicholas Dodman breaks new ground with the practice of One Medicine, the profound recognition that humans' and other animals' minds and emotions work in similar ways. Racehorses with Tourette's Syndrome, spinning dogs with epilepsy, cats with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, feather-plucking parrots with anxiety, and a diffident Bull Terrier with autism-these astonishing cases were all helped by One Medicine. Traditional treatments did not cure the behaviors because they treated the symptoms as disorders of the body, rather than problems of the mind. 'This book itself is powerful medicine,' writes Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus. 'Compelling...Dodman injects empathy into a world where sympathy previously reigned,' praised Publishers Weekly. 'With much charm and compassion' (Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse), Pets on the Couch raises our understanding of our pets' complex interior lives and mental abilities, leading to a greater appreciation of them and the bonds we share.
