 +====== Pet therapy ======

 +Patients suffering from even mild forms of stress, anxiety, or depression may want to consider getting or interacting with a **pet**. Interaction with pets has a well-defined positive favorable effect on psychopathological status and perception of quality of life.(({{pubmed>​long:​16191447}}))

 +My dog is my new best mate, and I am instantly feeling much better emotionally for having him. And I mean I "​REALLY"​ feel better. I go out more, I walk more and I laugh more, I have something else to think about other than my sarc symptoms and medication. It is quite remarkable the power of pets.

 +Hubby bought me two hair dogs, both hypo-allergenic. ​ One shih tzu and a lhasa apsa (poppi). ​ One is kept fairly short-haired and the other long, but I have never had a reaction to either. They are both medically-approved companion pups as the docs realize how much time I spend alone and indoors and I need them as much as I need my Benicar.
