You might be surprised to know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website (CDC) has a whole section dedicated to illustrating the health benefits of pet ownership and you can find it here: Healthy Pets, Healthy People.
Turns out that our furry, feathered, and scaly friends who are with us through thick and thin, and support us when we need it most, are actually really healthy for us too! Go ahead, take your mind off things today and celebrate your favorite pet’s birthday…even if it isn’t. 😉 They won’t know, and they’ll be happy to receive your extra attention anyway. So spring for that can of Cesar’s dog food, put a candle in it and sing happy birthday to one of your best friends...You’ll both be happy that you did.
