      Life is Better with a Best Friend: How your Pet Can Help you Live Longer

      According to a 2019 study by the American Heart Association Circulation Journal, pet owner's relationships with their dogs are giving them a much-appreciated longevity boost. The findings in the research included a 24% drop of “risk of death” in comparison to those who do not own dogs. Some of the American Heart Association Circulation Journal studies connected the longevity to the increase in physical exercise associated with dog ownership. Our four-legged friends encourage us to go on walks or jogs, helping us fight against conditions such as heart disease. Dog owners can easily lower their blood pressure by simply petting their pup. Dog ownership also provides many mental health benefits such as a decrease in loneliness, increased self-esteem, and lower rates of depression.

      As a pet owner, you can help your best friend stay healthy by providing veterinary care from the comfort of your pet's home. In-home veterinary care provides long-term health benefits and reduces stress on your pet by keeping them in a familiar setting with the comfort of their pet parent throughout the exam. Brick and mortar veterinary facilities can expose your pet to ill animals, people, sights, and smells that they are not used to, which can put them at risk of getting ill and or make them feel uneasy.
