Sharing our lives with companion-animals
We are a nation of animal lovers who enjoy taking care of our companion animals, however, they take care of us too.
They can bring so much joy and happiness into our lives and many see them as a valued member of the family. Many people choose to share their lives with companion animals such as dogs and cats.
The impact of developing a human-animal bond can have an amazingly positive influence in promoting the health and wellbeing of both animal and guardian.
Keeping your furry friend happy and healthy is vital;
- They make great companions and can help reduce stress by relaxing us and they tend to lower blood pressure in people too. When they wag their tail or purr at you, it can help reduce your stress levels, reduce the feeling of loneliness and aid towards improving your health and wellbeing.
- Introducing a four-legged friend into the family is a lifetime commitment and a decision which needs to be taken seriously and responsibly.
- They are loved by many ages including younger people and they can help develop their nurturing and empathy skills, which are vital in later life.
- It’s vital that you keep up to date with their vaccinations which will help them stay healthy and happy.
