Get a Green Pet Dog if You Want to Live Longer

Dogs are man's best friend. Do you also know that a dog can give several heath benefits? Based on studies done by medical professionals, dog owners benefit from their pet's presence in several ways. Do you want to know how can your green pet dogs help green your health?
1) Improved cardiovascular health
Dog guardians have been proven to have lower blood pressure and cholesterol than ordinary people. These reduce the chance for cardiovascular diseases. Stroking a dog has already long been known to reduce blood pressure.
2) Faster recovery time and higher survival rates
Hospital studies have found that seniors and recently operated on patients responded better to treatment. They even got better quickly while they were in contact with dogs and other therapy animals. Petting a dog can be relaxing and therapeutic for recovering patients.
Also, dog parents have a greater chance to survive after suffering from a serious illness. A study in New York found that pet's affected their survival rate even more than the presence or company of family members or friends.
3) Fewer visits to the doctor
A Medicare study for elderly patients discovered that those who have dogs pets visit the doctor less than those who don't have a pet. Studies conducted at Cambridge and UCLA also found out that owning a pet corresponds to overall improved health and less need for hospital visits.
4) Mental Wellness
Patients with dogs are known to have better emotional health than their counterparts. They offer unconditional love and affection. Their presence alone helps reduce loneliness for sick people who have otherwise been isolated. Several studies of sick people have shown that the stress of fighting the disease is significantly reduced when they had a dog as company.
As you can see, having a green dog is a great investment. There are lots of profit, the joy that you get from owning one and the health benefits that you can receive. So go out and get a green dog now, don’t miss the chance to live green.
