General Research Interests

  • Pharmacologic control of animal behavior problems.

Research Interests by Area

Spontaneous Animal Disease Models
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder models in dogs and cats, and autism model in dogs
Neuroscience and Reproductive Biology
  • Animal Models of Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders

    Animal models of are frequently used to elucidate disease mechanisms and identify potential therapeutic targets. A large number of preclinical models of psychiatric disorders have been developed in rodents. Additionally, spontaneous clinical models of psychiatric disorders, such as separation anxiety and compulsive disorder, have been documented in dogs. With regard to neurological disorders, conditions such as stroke, can be induced in rodent models and are also observed clinically in companion animals. Information regarding genetic predisposition, sex-specificity, and age-related factors can also be assessed using these types of animal models. Learn more
