Pets give us their unconditional love, they are very happy when we return home and they make us feel good when we are in a bad mood. It is, of course, about our non-speaking friends.

Puppy or cat, small or large, does not matter, because any pet usually has the same beneficial influence on you. It lifts your spirits, rewards you when you caress it (twists, barks, or just wags its tail), and doesn't betray you (it's hard to attach to other people). These are just some of the reasons why experts have agreed: pets keep you healthy.

They are little anti-stress therapists

Are you tired from work or do you have a problem to solve and are you very agitated? It is enough to caress your pet so that, in a few minutes, you can already feel more carefree.

It may seem unbelievable, but studies prove it. For example, when you caress a cat, a considerable amount of endorphins, neurotransmitters responsible for the well-being, are released in the brain, and thus the production of cortisol, the stress hormone, responsible for the development of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, is stopped.

Sometimes you don't even need to caress him, but it's enough to see him spinning around his tail or running from one corner of the house to another in the joy of seeing you. In addition, pets tolerate and accept their master as he is, which gives us mental comfort.

They drive depression away

The fact that it promotes an increase in endorphin levels is not the only reason why psychologists claim that pets give you a good mood and drive away depressive states.

Depression is often exacerbated by feelings of loneliness and isolation. And when you have a pet, you can't feel alone, because it always makes its presence felt, being dependent on you. In addition, having a pet "forces" you to do certain activities that make you forget about your own worries, such as feeding and walking the puppy or brushing the cat.

Some people are so shy that they do not have the courage to socialize and therefore are very lonely, according to experts, having a dog is a real benefit for them because it gives them the pretext to talk to other pet owners when they take him for a walk.

They make you more responsible

They need food, they have their own health care and they need to have up-to-date vaccinations and deworming, some of them also need a baby from time to time, not to mention their boundless need for your attention. Without a doubt, a pet is a real responsibility.

That is why experts believe that a pet should have a pet, especially people who tend not to take responsibility, but also those who are disorganized, because a puppy, a cat, or a parrot imposes a daily rhythm. alert.

They make patients respond better to treatment

The fact that pets reduce the level of stress in the body helps you to control certain conditions aggravated by internal tensions. Several studies have shown that people who care for a pet, whether it is a mouse or a parrot, have fewer problems with blood pressure.

In addition, sick people respond better to treatment, and those who have undergone surgery recover faster.


A pet can be welcome for those who need love and for those who are not yet ready to show unconditional love.

Experiments on individuals in maximum-security prisons, but also on patients who have suffered strokes, have shown how beneficial an animal they can take care of can be.

The unconditional love offered by the animal, the gentleness, the understanding, and the tolerance with which he accepts his master cannot remain without an answer even in the coldest soul. Finally, people who care for an animal begin to relax, take responsibility, to learn to offer love and trust.

This change can be more than miraculous, changing not only a person's mood but also their destiny. Not coincidentally, studies show that people who not only love animals but also take care of them, live longer, because they learn to be relaxed, to give, and to respect a loved one. In addition, pets impose a certain rhythm of life on their owners, which helps to form daily rituals, which play an important role in ordering life.
