Owning a Pet May Protect You from Heart Disease. There are many benefits to owning a pet, but one of the most important may be that it is good for your health. Doctors are studying the link between pet ownership and the risk of heart disease, and they believe that taking care of an animal may lower the risk of heart attack and stroke. If you own a pet, you may be more likely to exercise so that your furry friend stays healthy, and you will also benefit from the emotional support that an animal has to offer. However, researchers point out that pet ownership is not the sole factor in having a healthy heart, and people should not adopt pets simply to reduce the likelihood that they will suffer from heart disease.
