I am struggling with the VA right now with my PTSD Service Dog...they are waiting on a 'ruling' that does not reflect the current Title 38 Section 1714, Public Law 2009. Hopefully they will get their act together soon!

God bless and let's hope they do!! It is LONG OVERDUE!!! Thank you so much for your service and sacrifice. I am the mother of a son who committed suicide because of PTSD. He served in Iraq in 2003/2004. I pray you will do everything you can to take care of yourself!

Ramon J. Montoya I replied with an answer...but it looks like they deleted it. Guess we are to just sign the petition and not inform people about whats really going on. I'll post on my WWP Discussion: PTSD Service Dog what I originally had here.

Ya think? I've always stuck by my theory...that a spiritual and/or a trustworthy connection, is far better than anything clinical.

I have been suffering from alcoholism for more years than I care to remember. Right now I am in an ADTP program and wish to go to a recovery home for more help. I have a wonderfull dog that I have had for over two years. The VA Refuses to evan consider the use of the help that would greatly improve my chances by having the emontional help that my dog would most definetly provide. I have worked with her for the two years that she has been with me. She is very well trained. As usual the Va has their head where it is warm and humid.

I totally agree with this! I don't personally have PTSD, but I have a friend and his name is "Gigabite" he is my dog and he helps me in ways I can't even begin to count. He drags my but out of the house to go for a walk when I don't feel like it and I always feel so much better that I went walking with him. I live alone and he is like my best friend, he don't talk back and always wants to be around me. Anyway I'm a firm believer that dogs & cats help people in countless ways, and there are...

It would be highly enriching for animal protection organisations, police, education and medical care to train abandoned dogs and other pets for useful help, according to their natural talents, instead of overfilling animal shelters or exterminating them.

As someone who suffers with severe depression, I don't know how I would get along without my kitty OZ. Can't have a dog where I live, but whether it's a dog or cat, they can bring so much love and joy into your heart. Our vets need all the help they can get and the love of a pet gives you unconditional love. Also, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ADOPT from your local shelters.

All of my pets over the years I've adopted from the local animal shelter. So many beautiful loving dogs and cats just looking for someone to take them home and give them love. Our vets deserve so much more when they come home from war, than our government is giving them. God Bless all of our vets, my heart goes out to you for everything that you do to give us our freedom and protecting our country.
