It has been clinically proven that through petting, touching, and talking with animals, blood pressure is lowered, stress is relieved, and depression is eased. Take a break from studying or reward yourself after your final and relax with a retriever, love a lab, hug a husky, or pet a pug. They are here for you to enjoy!
