WASHINGTON (PRWEB) June 11, 2020
In recognition of Pet Appreciation Week, the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), in partnership with LifeLearn Animal Health, have created a new, shareable human-animal bond kit, highlighting the health benefits of a healthy relationship with a pet.
The scientific research that supports the human-animal bond – or the mutually beneficial relationship between people and pets – for better health indicates that pets can make a difference in promoting physical activity, facilitating social connectedness, healthy aging and more.
According to HABRI’s survey of pet owners , knowledge of the human-animal bond improves pet care and welfare. When educated on the scientific research on the health benefits of pets:
- 92% of pet owners are more likely to maintain their pet’s health, including keeping up with vaccines and preventative medicine
- 89% of pet owners are more likely to take their pet to the vet for regular check-ups
HABRI and LifeLearn are proud to work together in creating shareable content for veterinarians and animal health professionals. The more we can remind people that in good times and bad, our companion animals are wonderful sources of support, comfort and joy, the healthier and happier we will be, together.
