Are there 2 types of OCD? Cause Ive been told OCD is a joint problem and makes Bernese Mountain Dog's chase their tail. How can a joint problem make a dog chase their tail?

It can't, unless the disease effects joints and brain, that is possible.

Osteoarthitis is different from osteochondritis dissecans, which is OCD. Osteoarthridis is a joint problem, while osteochondritis dissecans is a mental problem that makes a dog chase its tail.
