Overview
Increasingly, medicine is recognizing the special relationship between pets and people as one of the most powerful weapons in fighting disease, treating chronic conditions, and coping with troubling times. In fact, many doctors are routinely "prescribing" pets for their patients.
The Healing Power of Pets explores these phenomena in greater detail, combining revolutionary scientific discoveries with deeply moving, personal stories of the unique bond between pets and their owners. The stories are of people who have learned how to triumph over chronic pain, paralyzing phobias, sedentary lifestyles, and life-threatening conditions--showing us that the best medicine might be that furry tail-wagging pet at your side.
