Dogs for vets with PTSD

Dogs for vets with PTSD

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs says almost 240,000 veterans have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, since 2001.  In most cases, the trauma comes with combat experience, but that's not always the case.

Good Day Atlanta's Ron Gant met a woman who has struggled with PTSD for years, but is now finding help through a four-legged friend.
