Animal Therapy is Making Strides in the Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

While the majority of cases involve pairing PTSD patients with dogs, the treatment has also seen positive results when patients interact with other animals like horses, cats, birds and, wait for it – dolphins. Pets have measurable positive impacts on the humans who care for them. Pets: reduce stress, reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, boost the immune system, and promote exercise. Now to that list can be added: help PTSD patients to reduce their symptoms.

Starr Newman's curator insight, January 21, 2015 8:52 PM

I found this article extremely insightful. In all the information I've read, studies, journals, articles and personal stories I found that the information on Animal therapy in this particular topic very helpful. Many veterans suffer silently and with a companion they dont have to. It has been shown that symptoms reduce in Animal therapy.
