Definitely agree about the dogs! I have 2 and I call them my Nurse Dogs. One is even my "velcro dog." They are my company when no one is around and my physical therapy aides, too!

I'm sure that cat lovers will say the same thing. Pet's are good for us in SO many ways!

Dog AND cat lover here!

One of my favorite articles to share on WebMD is Pets for Depression & Health.

The first page lists the many benefits of sharing your life with a furry friend.

Did you know WebMD has a Healthy Pets Center and a Pet Health Community?
