A therapy pet can be one of a number of animals –
Dogs, cats, llamas, miniature pigs, mini-horses, or birds
But many people choose dogs.
Dogs could be emotional support dogs,
Therapy, and certified service dogs
But why are these dogs necessary?
Many people attest to the benefits of having such pets.
Because they lift their mood, relieve stress,
And help them recover from health problems
In hospitals and mental institutions
Classrooms are also a good place for such dogs
Students benefit during physical exercise
Interactions with these dogs lower blood pressure
And having them around are stimulating
For they assist students and patients with pain management.
But there’s a difference between a “therapy dog” and “service dog.”
A therapy dogs helps their clients physically and emotionally,
While a service dog perform tasks
Those individuals are unable to do themselves
“God, help us to use the pets of your creation in beneficial ways. Teach us the best ways to use such animals to serve mankind. And help us to treat these pets with love and kindness for the work they do.”
