A six-year-old mastiff cross named Amber was abandoned and had clear signs of clinical depression. The dog had missing patches of fur and was emaciated when its previous owner dropped it off at the animal shelter. Jennifer Williamson, an animal acupuncture expert, was called in to help the dog recover from its depression.
The first acupuncture session with the dog yielded promising results. After six sessions, the dog’s condition dramatically improved. The dog seemed to revert back to puppy-hood since the treatment converted this once sad dog into an excitable one.
