You Should Get a Pet!

There are many benefits to owning a pet. 

.

Humans are naturally drawn to companionship which is why so many people own pets. The relationship between a pet and it’s owner is mutually beneficial for both parties. 

.

Scientific research has shown that owning a pet can help buffer stress, lower heart rate, lower blood pressure, give social support, help you stay in shape, ward off depression, and even prevent certain illnesses. This is because pets provide their owners with love, comfort, and humor, which have health benefits.

.

Pets also help their owners get exercise. Pets demand walks, attention, play time, baths, and overall care. 

.


Pets are also beneficial to children. Studies have shown that animals help encourage cognitive stimulation, improved behavior in children, heightened understanding of others, increased immunity, and lower anxiety levels within children. They can also help to teach kids responsibility at an early age which will help them throughout their life. 

.

Studies have also shown that if children grow up in a household with a furry animal they will have less allergies than the average child. 

.

Pets can also help ease people out of social isolation and shyness. Owning a pet helps you make friends because usually you take them to new places you wouldn’t have originally gone without a pet.

.

All in all owning a pet has many benefits and they are just too cute to resist, go get a pet!
