Depression. Pets and depression

If you are suffering from depression, apathy, lack of interest in life, get treatment, but also get a pet!

Pets encourage positive thinking. People with pets recover faster and have fewer relapses. Just having a pet in the room, be it a fish, ferret, cat, dog, or any other critter, changes your autonomic responses for the better.

Get a pet! You won't regret it.

I wish Comments By: M on 2005-05-30
I'm sure that's true to some extent. I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 3 fish, 1 newt, 1 mouse, and yet I am the saddest girl in the world. It does work for a while I have noticed. If I get a new pet it helps, but only for a while. That may be why I have so many pets.
MY Stupid Pet Comments By: Fred Smitt on 2005-07-15
As i look at my Dog Scruffy, I notice the pathetic look on his face, as if he would shot himself if he had the choice, i see his staggerring walk as he hides from people in shame. using his only three legs. gazing in aw at his withered fur coat, thinking to my self, i dont think Scruff has ever gotten laid...wow, then i think.....at least i dont have it as bad as scruffy. So i guess it does help. Thanks scruffy i luv ya pal.
