Studies show that having a pet is good for seniors as it makes seniors feel better physically, mentally and emotionally. This is the reason why pet therapy also known as animal-assisted therapy is becoming more and more popular today. Pet therapy treatment involves human and animal interaction. It utilizes trained animals to promote health and healing for patients, including seniors who are depressed, chronically ill and have disabilities. The pets used for Pet Therapy treatment provide affectionate and unconditional love to recovering patients, making it an excellent supplemental treatment.
