We have always known that pets can make us feel better. Now this power of healing is being used in medicine:
“Research has found many patients recover faster and more fully if their mood can be raised, and the arrival of friendly dogs and cats in their ward has been found to do just that.
The charity, Pets as Therapy (PAT) has introduced pet therapy sessions at the Neath Hospital on the directions of the governing Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University (ABMU) Health Board.”
But of course! I hope to see thee heling power of pets used more widely – in education and at work. As a Veterinarian, I already get to enjoy that.
