Pawsitive Therapy: The Healing Power of the Human-Animal Bond

Pawsitive Therapy
Dogs are a man’s best friend but, for kids battling illness, relief from the stress of their situation may come on four legs. A study shows that furry friends may also improve a child’s chance of surviving cancer. An ongoing study conducted by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) demonstrates the positive influence animal assisted interventions can have on children undergoing cancer treatment. The research, which was conducted in multiple hospitals and rehabilitation facilities throughout America, was presented at the AAP National Conference and Exhibition in October 2015.
