Doing a Story on Pets?

Did you know that in addition to loving us unconditionally, our pets also reduce our stress, lower our blood pressure, and can even help us live longer?

Currently, APPA is working to educate the public on how interacting with pets is beneficial to their health. The unique bond we share with our pets dramatically enriches our lives, our physical health and our emotional well-being. Many studies have shown that while we are taking care of our pets, our pets are taking care of us.

In fact…

  • Petting and talking to an animal lowers blood pressure and stress levels
  • Aquarium viewing is a proven stress buster
  • Pet owners make fewer visits to the doctor
  • Pets increase the survival rate of people with heart problems
