How Pets Can Help with Anxiety

Pets provide people with unconditional love and they’re important for physical and mental health. More people than ever before are experiencing anxiety that can vary widely in scope and severity. Pets alleviate loneliness, depression and anxiety, along with feelings of loneliness and isolation from multiple sources.

Having a pet to care for allows individuals to focus on the wellbeing of another living being outside of themselves. The human-animal bond is powerful and the benefits of those relationships has been scientifically documented. Dogs and cats are the most common pets, but all pets help lift the weight of anxiety.
