Doctor Dog

when you do not feel well, I bet you turn to your furry loved ones for comfort and healing.  A purring cat, stroking a dog’s fur, a cuddle buddy make the best medicine. I have been having back pain which is quite unusual for me. Cici is such a source of strength during this time of healing. And I do not know what many of us would do if we had to be in a cold, antiseptic hospital environment without our beloved pets.

That is why, this article make me happy. Some hospitals are actually letting patients pets visit them while they are ill.   Imagine if every hospital had therapy dogs and allowed pets to visit patients.

    I’m a deep believer in the healing power of animals. As a nurse, I wish more health care providers and institutions would recognize this, and incorporate animals more fully and functionally into the healing process, in the form of more therapy pets and animal assisted therapy, and whatever other creative and therapeutic ways people can think of..
