Animals can have schizophrenia!

Rats are the most used to research SZ meds by inducing SZ with a dissociative/hallucinogenic drug like psilocybin (magic mushrooms), cocaine, LSD, THC (liquid or injection weed), etc
They also do genetic modifications on rats to induce SZ in them.

They can change rats genes by injecting the pregnant mother with a gene inside a virus.
Viruses can change our genes. Maybe someday they find a genetic treatment with a viral vector like a genetically engineered virus.

Genes of SZ are too complicated, scientists only found like 20% of SZ genes. They are similar to genes causing other mental illnesses like autism and mental disability.
