Family Pets: 7 Healthy Reasons You Should Consider a Furry Friend!

If you’ve been looking for a reason to get a pet, look no further than good health. Medical research shows that pets may:

  • lower blood pressure
  • lessen anxiety
  • boost immune systems

Aside from the obvious health benefit of regular exercise in the form of walking a dog, exposure to a furry pet from birth seems to decrease a child’s risk of allergies, and dog or cat owners who had heart attacks survived longer than their pet-free counterparts. The list of benefits goes on, including helping people deal with shyness and social isolation. 

What are you waiting for? Adopt a pet and get healthy!
