HEALTH BENEFITS OF PET OWNERSHIP

Research published in the British Journal of Health Psychology in 2007 explored the health benefits of keeping pets. Dr. Deborah Wells of Queen's University, Belfast, reviewed a number of studies and concluded that keeping a dog brought greater benefits to health than owning a cat. In general, pet owners were healthier than average--especially dog owners, who experienced benefits such as lowered blood pressure and cholesterol. It was suggested that owning a dog improves health by lowering stress, giving companionship, and encouraging constitutional "walkies."
