Science Proves The Obvious: Pets Are Good For Us

It's official!

Science has confirmed that pets are good for youβ€” both mentally and physically.

One theory is that pets boost our oxytocin levels, also known as the "bonding hormone" or "cuddle chemical." Oxytocin enhances social skills, decreases blood pressure and heart rate, boosts immune function and raises tolerance for pain.

According to Mother Nature Network, oxytocin also lowers stress, anger and depression.
