Beamer, Shellie Skopit's golden retreiver, receives electrotherapy acupuncture at the Park Animal Hospita in Darien. The yellow in Beamer's head was placed first to calm him down. The electrotherapy is used to further stimulate blood flow and decrease pain due to age and joint problems. Skopit, pictured at right, sets the electricity that will run through the needles in Beamer.
