Grief Brief 43 - Animal Companionship

Animal companionship typically results in fewer migraines and less persistent fears.  Fewer phobias, lower levels of panic, and less drug and alcohol intake are very positive side effects associated with our furry friends.  The love and acceptance of a pet, helps us to combat depression and isolation.  If you have a family pet, be mindful of their needs.  Taking Fido out for a brisk walk will provide both of you healthier opportunities for exercise, socialization and companionship.
