Five Ways Pets Improve Your Health

Pets do so much for our mental and physical health. If you know someone who's considering adopting a canine or feline companion, be sure to pass this information along!

  1. Improved mood: It's been proven that animals lower cortisol levels (a hormone that causes stress) and increase serotonin levels (a chemical associated with well-being). The combination of these two things is a recipe for a happier you.
  2. A healthier heart: Simply petting a dog or cat can lower your blood pressure and bring your heart rate down.
  3. Increased physical fitness: Those twice daily fifteen minute dog walks can really add up! Whether it’s walking, jogging, swimming, hiking, or playing fetch, spending time with your dog will undoubtedly lead to an increase in activity. More activity can mean a healthier weight and stronger bones.
  4. More social interaction and a healthier mind: Striking up a conversation with a fellow dog owner while out and about happens naturally all the time. It’s healthy for the mind to avoid isolation and stay engaged with others.
  5. Fewer allergies in children: Research has shown that kids who grow up in households with dogs or cats are less likely to develop allergies. They’re also more likely to have stronger immune systems.
