Pet Owners Visit Physicians Less, Says New Report

Researchers have pointed out that pet owners have the benefit of better health — especially dog owners.

Key takeaways:

  • If you own a pet, research shows that you will have fewer medical complaints than those who don’t have pets.
  • The Human-Animal Bond Research Initiative says that pet ownership results in $11 billion savings in healthcare costs.
  • An estimated 20 million people who walk their dog five or more times per week had a lower incidence of obesity.

Researchers said that more data was necessary before they could calculate savings on the positive impact of pet ownership for infection control, cardiovascular disease, cholesterol, stress and psychological issues.
