A Pet Can Lower Your Blood Pressure


Whether you favor purse-size pups or you are more of a cat woman, interacting with animals can decrease your blood pressure and cholesterol, and just being around dogs boosts levels of serotonin – the brain chemical responsible for lifting mood.

I should know.  Our westie makes me healthier and his infectious energy is so delightful! Even if he totaled my guitar’s prs archon, I still love this little guy!  I just feel so relaxed around him (and my doctor says my blood pressure is sooo normal!)

If you don’t have a pet, go to your local park and watch other people’s animals frolic. completedfavicon
