Increasingly, veterinarians are called on to treat behavioural disorders in companion pets such as cats, dogs and horses, which can often develop aggressive compulsive or other antisocial habits. In America, veterinarians are beginning to treat these disorders with psychotropic drugs such as Prozac, which have already been shown to yield good results in humans. In the UK, these drugs cannot yet be used on animals, but a number of pharmaceutical companies are developing derivatives for use in animal practice and these products are eagerly awaited. The effects are expected to be as far-reaching as tranquillisers and antidegressants were when they were introduced into human medicine.

Behavioural models in psychopharmacology are used for different purposes. The main concern of industrial psychopharmacologists is specifically to develop new and improved drugs for the treatment of mental disorders, while basic scientists use animal models to investigate the underlying nature of such conditions. The important distinction between these different perspectives is made explicit for the first time in this book. By considering such conditions as anxiety, depression, mania and schizophrenia, feeding disorders, dementia, and drug dependence, this book provides a comprehensive and critical review of the adequacy of the behavioural procedures used by psychopharmacologists to model psychiatric disorders. Graduate students and research workers in pscyhopharmacology, from both academic and industrial spheres, as well as clinicians, will find this book of considerable interest.
