It is an accepted fact that the companionship of a pet during the golden years of your life can not only increase your life expectancy, but a pet can also dramatically increase your quality of life as well. Choosing the right pet is important, and the interaction between pets and their owners is extremely important, which is why dogs and cats can be some of our best companions.
The health benefits of our furry companions is amazing. Studies have shown that when older individuals are paired with a pet, the visits to their physicians decreases. Blood pressure levels decrease, range of mobility increases, and most importantly, the psychological benefits are immense.
