Military dogs are exposed to the same loud sounds and violent encounters as their handlers and about 5% of those dogs suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, putting themselves and their human controllers' lives in jeopardy, according to veterinarian Walter F. Burghardt Jr. The dogs are treated with behavioral therapy and medication, but may be reassigned if they cannot resume combat duties.
