For many of us, our pets are part of the family; a companion, a best friend! Spending quality time with your furry friends can have a positive impact on your mood and health. Pets can be calming and help fight our daily stress.
Research shows pets can lead you to have a healthier heart and lower your blood pressure. People with pets are generally happier, more trusting, and less lonely than those who do not have pets. They also tend to visit the doctor less often for minor problems. One reason may be that your pet gives you a sense of belonging and meaning.
It has been known that babies raised in families that have pets may be less likely to get allergies and asthma. Also, studies have proven that kids tend to relate better to their classmates and other children with autism when there are pets in the classroom.
