      Health benefits of keeping a pet

      It may sound surprising but keeping a pet can provide a whole host of health benefits. Pets not only improve the quality of life, they also bring in greater happiness and good health. They boost the sense of wellness too.

      Prevent allergies

      Research has found that the more pets you have early in life, the fewer allergies you are likely to develop. Children who grow up on farms do not have allergies, its natural immunotherapy.

      Cuts down stress

      When you play with your dog or watch your goldfish swim, it takes your mind away from what’ stressing you. You will feel calmer and more relaxed.

      Never feel lonely

      Even if you live all by yourself, having a pet will transform your life. You will never feel lonely and alone. Loneliness has been linked with heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease but research shows that older adults who owned pets were 36 percent less likely to feel lonely.

      Boost your immunity

      It’s true that when pets come inside the house from outside they bring all kinds of dirt and germs with them. However, this is not necessarily bad as you might tend to think. It can boost your immunity to colds and other mild illnesses. 

      Get more exercises

      Pets especially dogs encourage you to get more exercise as you have to walk them.  A Michigan State University study actually discovered that those who own dogs exercise about half an hour more per week than those who don’t.

      Brings down pain levels

      When you spend time with your pets, you might need less pain medication if you suffer from any kind of pain especially post-surgery.

      Good for your heart

      Heart attack patients with pets are known to survive longer than those without, this is based on several studies. Besides, male pet owners show reduced signs of heart disease -- lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
