Why Dogs Make Great Companions

According to researchers from Queen's University in Belfast reveal that out of 138 pet owners living with diabetes, 65 percent of those individuals said their dogs had a behavioral reaction, such as barking or whining when their diabetic owner was experiencing a dangerous drop in blood sugar. Aside from detecting health issues, a study from 2008 conducted by the American Heart Association revealed that seniors who underwent surgery had faster recovery rates when they had contact with dogs.
