Does Having a Pet Reduce Stress?

Anyone who has ever had a dog or cat sit on their lap can attest that thereโ€™s something automatic about wanting to pet them. Stroking a petโ€™s fur and feeling their warmth brings feelings of comfort. Itโ€™s no wonder that 98% of American households have one or more pets in their home. According to theย National Institutes of Health (NIH), pets are beneficial for people in various ways. They serve as loyal companions, foster a sense of responsibility, and even help reduce stress. And in the current fast-paced, ever-changing world, perhaps we need all the stress reduction we can get.ย
