Article: Pet Therapy
Even though I personally was on an antidepressant for over 10 years (which I dropped when I also dropped the ex husband..go figure huh?) I have always believed that there is no better therapy than a pet.
That's why this article from the Mayo Clinic almost made me clap for joy. It talks about what pet therapy is (and isn't), who can benefit (you may be surprised).
If needed, I would consider pet therapy before many others. How about you?
I know my cats help keep me calm. It's just another happy thing to have in my life and I like having lots of happy things in my life.
