Benefits of Pet Therapy

Animal assisted therapy is a scientifically proven form of therapy that is recognized as therapeutic and recreational.

  • By stroking an animal, the patient’s blood pressure and heart rates are reduced.
  • Animals give unconditional love.
  • Planned animal visits give patients something to look forward to.
