The day that pays homage to those lovable pooches couldn’t have come at a better time! Having a pet in your life is believed to, among other things, reduce stress and improve overall health and well-being. We could all use more of that from the recent coronavirus outbreak and 5.7 magnitude earthquake that hit last week in Salt Lake County.
According to The Human Animal Bond Research Initiative (HABRI), an estimated 133 million pet owners save nearly $11 billion on physician visits, while 20 million owners who walk their pets 5 times a week, show lower obesity and save over $400 million in healthcare costs. Those savings are reasons to give your four-legged friend a treat today!
So take the time and celebrate your puppy (or other favorite pet) today and be thankful for all the goodness they bring into your life.
