Pets Are Great For Your Health

Pictured-Daniel, The National Nurse Team Mascot

Just diagnosed with high blood pressure? Feeling isolated and shut in? Concerned about dying at a young age? Here is one solution to improve your health-get a pet. Research shows that pets reduce blood pressure, improve people's moods, increase social interaction, and add years to your life. Adding a pet to your household has been found to give a higher boost to your survival rate than having a spouse or friends. The good news is that this can be just about any animal from a bird to a turtle or from a cat to a dog. Cat and dog owners however, are especially appreciative of the unconditional, non-judgmental affection they receive from their pets. For more information on pet therapy visit this website.


When you take your pets to the beach or on a walk, be sure to have your National Nurse totebag to carry your suntan screen, pet treats, and your latest reading materials. Check out all the latest National Nurse merchandise at Cafe Press.
