Did You Know Pets Can Improve Your Mood?

Studies show that animals can reduce tension and improve mood. Along with treatment, pets can help some people with mild to moderate depression feel better. According to WebMD, pets can do this by providing “uncomplicated love.”

Also, the responsibility of taking care of a pet can give people focus and purpose in life, and keep them more physically active. Pets provide people with a routine, companionship, positive touch, and social interaction if they take their pets out into the community.

Pets also lead to better health, as research has found that owning a dog can lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormones, and boost levels of feel-good chemicals in the brain.
