New Year – Here’s to Your Health

Top Health Benefits of Pets

Not only are pets good companions, but they’re good for our health! Here are a few ways that dogs and cats help our minds and bodies.


  1. Stress Relievers

There’s nothing like a warm, cozy cuddle session to melt away stress after a long day. Calming cuddles with your pet can lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety levels.


  1. Heart Helpers

Pets can have a positive effect on our hearts. Studies have reported better survival rates for heart attack patients with pets and improved heart rate variability, which is an indicator of heart health.


  1. Mental Boosters

Our furry friends can help combat depression. In studies, pet-assisted therapy helped reduce depression in chemotherapy patients. Pets also reduced stress for people caring for loved ones with dementia.



Return the favor by taking great care of your pet’s health for a long and happy life.
