The Power of Pets

For your news article of the week, I found this sweet one about how one hospital has started a type of therapy that utilizes patient’s pets. We often hear about pet therapy, where a trained animal (usually a dog, but other animals can do it too, even a miniature pony!) comes to bring comfort to those in the hospital. The difference of this program is that the patient’s own pet comes to visit them. While there has been talk about infection control and safety, this hospital has been working a way around it. Check it out and see for yourself what they’re doing!
