Our history with pets goes a long way back. While it may not always be the happiest of tales, one thing is clear— we need one another. In a story that has gone from adversarial to one of function, we now have come to view animals as healers. They do more than feed us and serve us; they help us grow socially, emotionally and spiritually. In this new Special Edition from TIME, we explore the many ways in which animals enrich our lives.
Animals and Your Health covers many topics including emotional–support animals, which are popping up everywhere, and increasingly come in all shapes, sizes, and species to the science of animal healing—how do animals boost our health and happiness, and how do you measure the results? How do animals help connect us to other people, and help extend and enhance the lives of the elderly? They have been proven to help ease PTSD in the lives of suffering soldiers and veterans—what special qualities do they have that facilitate this? Readers will also delve into what every dog and cat owner wonders on an almost daily basis about their pet: “What are you thinking?” Covering animal friendships, animals in pop culture and so much more, Animals and Your Health will bring understanding to our long–standing relationship with the creatures that we share the planet with.
