PTSD-400

A Message From our Friends at Bayer…

How Service Dogs Help Veterans with PTSD

Service dogs provide much more than companionship to veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). A new scientific study shows that veterans with service dogs can experience lower levels of depression, higher levels of life satisfaction and fewer missed days of work due to health reasons.  PTSD Scientific Study here.
