Health Benefits of Having a Pet
You are considering adopting a pet. What are the health benefits that you and your family may enjoy by having a pet?
- 1. Lowered blood pressure, heart rate, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels
- 2. Reduced stress, less anxiety
- 3. Strengthened immune system (medical studies now indicate that children who were raised in homes with a dog or cat are less likely to have allergies, asthma, eczema, etc.)
- 4. Increased exercise (i.e., dog walking)
Medical studies are ongoing, and knowledge is being gained each day. New studies, still being assessed by researchers, indicate health benefits in addition than those listed above. For example, recent studies suggest that pet ownership may reduce the incidence of heart attacks and strokes and may increase life expectancy post-heart attack.
So, for your health, and the health of your family, how about adopting and providing a loving home for your pet?
