Your Information Corner

 

Your pet is intimately attuned to your emotional state. Pets will often mirror the feelings of their family.

 

Stress has been shown to adversely affect healing and duration of remission in people with cancer.

You have an opportunity to decrease the stress your pet experiences by mindfully and purposefully attending to your own emotional well-being.

Here you will find resources to help you create a greater sense of well-being, decrease stress, increase positive emotions, and create self-care routines that will help you make the most of this precious time you have with your pet.

“I am larger, better than I thought; I did not know I held so much goodness.”
