Why owning a pet is good for your wellbeing. image
According to the information in the PDSA Animal Wellbeing (PAW) Report, we certainly like our pets with approximately  50% of the UK population owning one.  The report focused mainly on dogs, cats and rabbits.
  • 26% owned a dog
  • 24% owned a cat
  • 2% owned rabbits  

Sharing your home with a furry friend not only helps to combat loneliness and stress, it also helps reduce the risk of heart disease.  The findings suggested that owning a dog in particular, encourages people to be more active as every dog needs to be walked, thus helping to reduce high blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels  (as per the American Heart Association scientific statement, May 2013) as well as dog owners achieving the daily number of steps (or more) as recommended by the government.

Having a four legged loyal, waggy tail friend to welcome you on return from work is enough to lift your spirits. Dogs are quite amazing animals in so much as that they can help in a variety of situations, from being a companion, to a guide dog, a hearing dog, or a therapy pet.  All the more reason to treat them to a wee holiday too!
