Abstract

Stereotypic and obsessive-compulsive behaviors are defined, and examples are given for both dogs and cats. The cause of these behaviors is discussed; and it is maintained that they result from conflict and are influenced by genetics, early experience, and learning. Treatment options, such as changes in environment and management, behavior modification, and the use of various drugs are reviewed.
