Q. Are there programs for pets who are victims of attacks? ptsd? Were attacked by 2 thugs and beaten and 2 small dogs were injured and still suffer

A. You can always contact a behaviourist. You should try to help them to trust people again. Ask your friends and family to visit you and play with dogs, give them some treats, pet them. You can use collars or diffusors with pheromones, that will help them to regain emotional balance and feel more secure
