Bad days… We all have them. Constantly on the go with no time to spare? Overwhelmed with little to no support in carrying the brunt? Lost in the confusion of what is happening to our society? Most of us feel this way.
As pet owners, we may notice that when we are stressed or blue, our pets seem to respond to our feelings – either by curling up next to us and nudging our hand for some pets, or simply by being with us. Pets react to all of our emotions, including anxiety, sadness, and fear.
In today’s hectic world, self-care is often overlooked, which comes with detrimental effects on mental and physical health. So, how is it that our best fur friends can help us attend to the basics of nurturing ourselves? Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital is here to explain why pets encourage self-care.
