It is hard to understand an animals’ experience without interjecting our evaluation, but some physiological similarities can help us draw conclusions about their mental state. The hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls emotion, will exhibit similar physical change both in depressed humans and research induced animals. Species with connected family units or herds have been shown to exhibit depression more than those with a solitary existence.

  • A core symptoms of depression is the decrease and loss of interest in pleasurable activities and food
  • Reduced social interaction with other animals
  • Changes in sleep patterns and daytime activities
  • Another behavior that has been used frequently to measure animal depression is whether they readily give up when exposed to a stressful situation

Depressed animal my react more emotionally when challenged or further stressed. Some behaviors and actions that can result from depression include aggression, anxiety, destructive behavior, lack of or excessive grooming, excessive sleeping, lethargy, loss of appetite, loss of initiative, moping and pacing.

Withdrawn or depressed horses display an atypical posture. They exhibit an unusual gaze, with head and ears fixed. They are more indifferent than other horses to environmental stimuli in their home environment. Horses can become less responsive to tactile stimulation, less reactive to humans suddenly approaching their stall, and more reactive to the novel object. Ones tested have had lower blood plasma cortisol concentrations, also similar to humans.

The Alpha-Stim results are impressive!

Following a vaccination a 4 year old Yorkshire Terrier developed a fever, followed by a rash, and then paralysis in both rear legs. The neurologist gave his family a 20-40% chance of ever walking again. This is when he was brought to me. I immediately initiated Alpha-Stim microcurrent therapy. By 10 days he as using his right rear leg and then a few days later he developed some motor function in the left rear leg. This was a happy day!

On the first visit he lacked any deep pain. Now is deep pain positive both rear limbs – I love my career and Alpha Stim Microcurrent therapy!
