  Animal Health & Wellness

Veterinarian examing puppy Animals and humans have worked side by side since the earliest times on earth when they began to be domesticated. The connection with animals can bring joy, comfort, and even help and protection from harm. Pets and animal companionship can actually provide humans with many health benefits. Keeping a pet or spending quality time with an animal has been shown to help relieve stress and even ease lonliness. There is now a medically-approved class of "therapy animals," mostly dogs, that are brought to visit confined humans. Walking a dog can provide both the owner and the dog with exercise, fresh air, and social interaction.

The most popular pets are dogs and cats, but other popular animals kept as pets are rodents, such as gerbils, hamsters, chinchillas, and guinea pigs; birds, such as canaries, parakeets, and parrots; reptiles, such as turtles, lizards and snakes; and aquatic pets, such as tropical fish and frogs; and cultures for centuries have used the equine to benefit humanity, and horses make beloved companion animals--provided one has the space to keep them!

Domesticated animals are valued by humans for companionship and even wild animals hold a special place in the hearts of many who appreciate the diversity of life which share our planet with us. It's no wonder that there are many who devote their lives to the loving care, help and rescue, and medical and veterinarian assistance to animals. We rely on animals in so many ways, but animals also rely on us.

Providing the animal with nurturing care, attention and play, and daily necessities of life such as proper nutrition and adequate space is essential to its health. Providing proper medical care and treatment when necessary can help provide your pet with joy and contentment so it can live a long, healthy and happy life.

A pet is a household animal kept for companionship and a person's enjoyment, as opposed to wild animals or to livestock, laboratory animals, working animals or sport animals, which are kept for economic or productive reasons. The humane and ethical treatment of animals has been a centuries long debate that is on the minds and in the hearts of many. Where does one make the distinction between "food" or "pet"? Whether animals should be kept and confined or consumed for human food consuption, product or even sport is an issue that is has many at odds with one another, and these issues will most likely continue to be debated for years to come. happy smiley face
