Studies have shown that having pets can improve the health of seniors. Pets help to reduce stress and increase a sense of companionship and well-being. Having a pet is suitable for the owner, but it also allows the pet to learn responsibility and provide companionship to someone in need.
Reasons You Need a Pet
There are several reasons why having pets are good. Pets can provide a great source of physical activity; some pet owners walk their pets regularly or do other activities. For example, a dog owner may take their dog on walks in the neighborhood or at parks where they are allowed to go off-leash. The exercise provided by walking may reduce the risk of heart disease and other health risks. The animal’s presence may also provide companionship and comfort during difficult times. Pets can also provide a sense of security; if the pet were to bark, for instance, the pet owner would know that someone is at the door and might be able to get themselves out of bed to answer it before they fall.
