PETS LITERALLY SAVE OUR LIVES
LET'S RETURN THE FAVOR WITH THESE

Healthy Habits.

A recent study by Mount Sinai endocrinologist Dr. Caroline Kramer shows that the risk of dying early from almost any cause is reduced 24% by having a dog, or 31% for those who have already had a heart attack or stroke. In a similar study in Sweden, cardiac incident survivors who lived alone with their pet showed the biggest benefit. Clearly, the comfort and companionship pets provide has a huge health impact on people, so what can humans do for them? We’ve created this list of healthy pet habits for the new year. Just by keeping track, you’ll find these habits becoming part of your routine and improving your dog or cat’s life.
