Benefits of Pet Therapy

The benefits of pet ownership have been well documented. It makes sense that allowing animals in the workplace can have the same effect as living with them.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, and feelings of loneliness. They can also provide greater opportunities for exercise and outdoor activities.

According to PetMD, in addition to improving the lives of their owners, pets also strengthen relationships among humans.
