More than 40 percent of Americans ages 65 and above live with pets. The reason? For companionship and lots more.

The elderly and even younger individuals today invest time and other resources on their furry friends to keep them “sane” even when they’re alone as much as to boost their health. Likewise, pets also help combat depression, high blood pressure, and stress.

Despite pets’ crazy antics and stuff, none of these compare to the benefits they offer to their man companions. Owners still need to be patient and flexible when dealing with these fellas after all. But hey, who would not love such adorable creatures?

 

While any pet owner can certainly attest to the many benefits of living with a furry friend, research confirming the health benefits of senior pet ownership have appeared in many well-respected publications and medical journals.

Studies have shown that the bond between people and their pets can increase fitness, lower stress, and bring happiness to their owners. Some of the health benefits of having a pet include: decreased blood pressure, decreased cholesterol and triglyceride levels, decreased feelings of loneliness and increased opportunities for socialization.
