Health Benefits Of Pets

Health Benefits Of Pets

Ah, pets. They make us smile and laugh. They have so much love to share and are great companions. We love the joy they bring to all our apartment home communities. Everyone who has a pet understands how special they are.

But, did you know that pets are good for your health too? That’s right! Several scientific studies have established a connection between owning a pet and benefits to the health and wellness of their humans.

Health Benefits

According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, some of the most common health benefits of having a pet include:

  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Decreased cholesterol levels
  • Decreased triglyceride levels
  • Decreased feelings of loneliness
  • Increased exercise and outdoor activities
  • Increased socialization

These health benefits are something we see with our pets and from our residents. Pets can relieve stress and encourage us to stay active! Our pets are always there to offer support and unconditional love just when we need it most.  According to WebMD, there’s also growing evidence that pets decrease the risk of pet allergies and asthma in kids.
