How Pets Save Billions on Health Care Costs

Hello and Happy Friday! We're teaming up today with the folks from Petco to bring you some information on how pets make you healthier and save money on health care costs. Recent research from the Human Animal Bond Research Initiative (HABRI) shows that our pets are good for our health. A few ways pets benefit their parents' physical and mental health are: reduction of allergies; improvement in cardiovascular health; improved cholesterol; stronger immune defense against infection and improved mental health. 

Want to learn more about why pets are good for your health? Take a look at this graphic.



Of course, we pets already knew we're good for humans, but now there's research to back it up! 

Does your pet have an effect on your health?

  10. Bear saved my life ... no question. Making sure I laugh ... showing me love ... giving me a reason to fight when I didn't have one for myself ... he healed parts that I either didn't know needed healing or I'd given up on. Not to mention that watching him do everything with his whole heart (even if often misguided) is quite inspiring :)

  11. I try to keep mom healthy by making her do deep knee bends to get my toys out from under the furniture. She says she's "getting too old for this" but I make her do it anyway.
