Pet Therapy

It requires little imagination to understand why pet therapy is everyone’s favorite. But for those who may question whether or not it’s actually beneficial for cognitive and mental health, the science is here to prove it! Studies show pet therapy significantly improves unwanted behavioral responses to negative emotions, reduces feelings of loneliness, and stimulates movement and physical activity. Additionally, regularly spending time with animals is a highly-effective way to alleviate anxiety — which ultimately, can help restore the appetites of patients who normally struggle to have one.
