Purina Service Dog Salute with Wilmer Valderrama

TV star, producer and dog lover Wilmer Valderrama shares Purina’s Service Dog Salute campaign and the animals that help vets with PTSD and other problems. This year, as part of the program, dog lovers can join in selecting the first-ever Dog Chow Visible Impact Award winner by voting on the selected finalists.

Roughly 3.5 million military veterans suffer from PTSD, and while service dogs are demonstrated to reduce the severity of PTSD symptoms and suicidal behaviors, only 1% of those in need who seek a service dog receive one each year.
