It”s never easy to watch a senior pet experience the symptoms of old age.
After going through a terrible seizure brought on by GME (a central nervous system disease), this pup was left in terrible shape. But her last days were made much happier by a special new friend. The images captured by a cousin of the dog”s humans are absolutely heartwarming.
This is Bo.
She started having seizures in her old age, with one of them leaving her emotionally crippled.
To cure the neurological symptoms of depression…
Bo”s family decided that it was time to add a new member to the family.
That”s when Jake entered the picture.
Bo”s mood immediately improved, and the two essentially became inseparable.

It”s always incredible to see what a huge impact just a little bit of companionship can have. We see it all the time with therapy dogs for humans, but not many think to apply the same train of thought to sick or depressed animals. It just goes to show that, cat or dog, man or beast, we”re not so different after all.
