Pets can help you love your liver

As animal-lovers will already know, owning a pet can have a positive impact on people’s mental health and well-being. Evidence shows this is due to several reasons.

  • They can help reduce depression and anxiety by giving people something other than themselves to care about. Patting or stroking them can help relieve stress

  • Owning a pet, particularly a dog that needs daily walks, will get you out and about. A pet will challenge you to be more active and take better care of yourself

  • Exercise is good for mental health and it’s a good way to love your liver, too

  • Pets ease loneliness and isolation. If you live alone or don’t spend a lot of time around people, having an animal to talk to is a good way to share what’s on your mind and work through problems

  • Animals can help you make connections. Going for a daily walk with your dog often leads to conversations with other dog owners. Connecting with like-minded people is good for mental well-being

  • If you have a chronic condition such as hepatitis B, pets can provide a distraction so you can focus on something else when you need to.
