Mental Health & Your Pets

Science Alert reports that loudly yelling at your dog can produce a long term negative effect. Research indicates that pups criticized repetitively including leash jerking were found to be more stressed with increased levels of cortisol in their saliva. Treating your dog with dignity and respect could improve their cognitive function according to many Veterinarians-and could improve your mental health when you have an increasingly supportive companion at your side.

Not sure if this applies to cats. Our cat thinks about three things. Eating, Sleeping and Pooping. Ok, I will admit it she can be a great companion in the house when she feels like it.
