Love Your Dog, Save Your Heart

Having a pet dog and taking good care of it can lower your chances of suffering from cardiac problems and lower chance of an early death from any cause, according to a new research report.

A Swedish study of 3.4 million people in the age group of 40 and 80 found that having a pet dog lowered the chances of suffering from cardio vascular disease (CVD)  by 23% and 20% lower chances of dying over any cause. The study is based on an analysis of data for 12 years. Hunting dog breeds were found to give their owners the least chance of developing CVD. People living alone were also found to benefit from dog ownership as it cures social isolation and provided improved perception of well-being.

Pets in general given children and adults a sense of caring and loving but dogs are found to be the best friends of man since his hunting days. New research shows that investing time, money and energy in keeping a pet dog has intangible benefits in terms of health and longevity.
