New Year, New Healthier You

Pet Owners Encouraged to Work Out with Pets

Did you know that having a pet in your life can keep the doctor away? Pet owners receive more than companionship from their animals. In fact, the special bond between people and pets can lower stress levels and promote social interaction.

Other health benefits of owning a pet include:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower cholesterol levels
  • Decrease in feelings of loneliness
  • Increase in exercise

Looking for a lovable companion? Irving Animal Services has the perfect companion for you. Visit IAS adoptable pets to find a companion for your New Year’s Resolution to be healthier.
