Owning a Pet Can Reduce Blood Pressure
As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pets can also help lower blood pressure, especially in high-risk or hypertensive patients.
Marty Becker, author of the famous book Your Dog: the Owner’s Manual, suggests that having a dog can reduce blood pressure and relieve stress and anxiety significantly. You may end up losing your job, your 401K, or your house, but you will never lose or replace the unconditional love from your pet.
