Pet Therapy

Saturday, May 23, 2020

Pets are now becoming a very important part of modern patient care.  Many hospitals now realize that friendly dogs can help a person heal a lot faster and better.  Carefully chosen and well trained dogs can act as physical therapists.  The dogs encourage patients to exercise their arms and legs by playing a game of fetch with a dog toy or by grooming.  These pet therapists are particularly helpful to people who need rehabilitation after a brain or spinal cord injury.  Patients also benefit by a dog’s unconditional love and acceptance. Pet therapy has been shown to reduce anxiety and depression.  We could probably all use a session or two.

Remember, your pets count!
