Anyone who has ever owned a pet knows pets give their owners so much in terms of love and emotional support. They provide companionship and ease loneliness. Furthermore, they help with depression, anxiety, and stress. Many scientific studies have also shown that petting or playing with a dog, cat, or even rabbit for only 15 minutes can lower blood pressure and boost our mood. Moreover, interacting with a pet reduces stress-related hormones. That’s the reason why pets are very helpful for anxiety sufferers.
