Pets as an irreplaceable remedy for every kind of pain (Topic 1) Pets have always played a significant role in people’s lives. Not only do they provide an entertainment, company, bring light and energy to our lives, but also have a good influence over our health and mood. They can benefit human health in surprising areas such as allergies, depression, heart disease, or high blood pressure. While most pet owners are clear about the immediate joys that come with sharing their lives with companion animals, many remain unaware of the physical and mental health benefits. Therefore, I’m going to discuss these effects and I would like to concentrate precisely on causes of some types of diseases that the presence of pets may cure.

In 2002 a research was conducted during which people were put into a stressful situation and scientists were checking what changes occur in their heart rate and blood pressure in stressful circumstances. People with a dog or a cat had lower resting heart rates and blood pressure measures at the beginning of the experiment, they were also less likely to have spikes in heart rates and blood pressure while being under stress, and their heart rates and blood pressure returned to normal more quickly that the people who don’t own a pet. The pet owners were also less stressed when their pet was present during the experiment. In this case pets not only lower the level of stress, but also limit the risk of high blood pressures, strokes and other problems with heart rate. Pets, especially dogs are also helpful to elder people with diseases like dementia or Alzheimer’s. The dogs which are used in therapies for elder are subjected to rigorous training, they are assessed by their temperament and obedience to make sure that the pet will be appropriate for an elder person.
