There are many stories of how dogs are great for mental health. In fact many animals can be excellent for mental health. Spending time with animals releases oxytocin – a feel good hormone.
I have become allergic to my Yorkshire Terrier and miss him so much. I still get to see him but he has to stay away for quite a lot of time as he affects my breathing and worsens my asthma. Dogs are wonderful company. They offer unconditional love and make wonderful companions.
