The most obvious way our pets can help us is to give us company. Pets are company to thousands of people all over the world. People, who would not otherwise have anybody around them, rely on their pets to show love and to receive love.
Our pets can distress us. The very act of stroking your pet can de-stress us as well as giving energy to your pet. In the articles below it has been shown how stroking pets can lower our stress levels.
Pets have been shown to be great for children with autism, adults with Alzheimer’s, and other brain related disorders. As I said before they give people energy, they show unconditional love, and don’t really expect anything in return, except some food, some water, walking and a little love.
Pets can give us something to focus on, which helps with concentration, it can help to fight depression, it can help people with disabilities, and they are energy givers, love givers.
