Pet Therapy - Animal Assisted Therapy



I am finally home from hospital after almost three weeks.
My last stage was in Rehabilitation.
Every day the hospital dog, a brown Labrador named Beau, came to visit.
What a joy to see and pet her.
Pet therapy does much to influence healing.
Without a word, they show unconditional love and acceptance.

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear."
1 John 4 :18

  9. Yes, animals are therapeutic, that's for sure. My daughter works at our local library, and she told me they have a "reading dog" come in once a week. He is for children to read to. While they might be uncomfortable reading aloud to their parents or teacher, they can read to the dog...thereby growing their skills in an environment where they're not made fun of.

    Hope you're feeling completely well.

    Love,
    Patti
