The Healing Power of Pets

The Healing Power of Pets

It is no secret that pets enrich people lives, but this is even more so true for the elderly. Pets being nonjudgmental and seeking out love, provide an unfaltering companionship.

Many studies have shown that people with pets live healthier lives. In fact, therapy animals brought to facilities with elderly residents were shown to increase calmness, improve social interactions, and even improve nutritional intake/weight, mental alertness, and even happiness.


Overall, the human animal bond that is shared between people and pets is a symbiotic relationship that benefits both the elderly pet owner and the pet. AskTheVet hopes to aide in the strength of this bond, by keeping pets healthy and bettering lives of people and pets.
