Dogs suffer PTSD-like stress after Japan disaster 
Abandoned dogs rescued after the 2011 earthquake and subsequent nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan, suffered PTSD-like stress, a new study finds.
Live Science reports:

The research compared abandoned dogs rescued from Fukushima with non-disaster affected dogs abandoned in 2009 and 2010, before the earthquake. The dogs that lived through the disaster had stress hormone levels five to 10 times higher than the dogs that were simply abandoned or found as strays.
