FB_IMG_1459130448128Throughout history, we find evidence of the Human-Animal Bond. Daily, we hear pet parents claiming their pets to be valuable members of the family. As veterinary professionals, we are committed to promoting and enhancing the Human-Animal Bond.

As a result of numerous studies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognize the health benefits of companion animal interaction as follows:

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

Even more exciting, a New In Health (NIH) study found that pet owners who suffered heart attacks were more likely to survive than non-pet owners. The student went on to find that pet owners have better cardiovascular health overall.

Daily, we are finding increasing evidence to support the benefits of the Human-Animal Bond starting in childhood and carrying through adult life. As humans, we can benefit greatly from being in the company of other creatures of the world. As a Veterinary Professional, I’m particularly excited about the incorporation of animal therapy services in the human medical field which is growing in awareness and demand.

The Veterinary Field is a unique profession where we have the opportunity to have a positive impact on all species of the planet. The Veterinary Assistant Training Program offered through MK Education provides students an excellent start to a tail-wagging career!
