dogs, good for heart, emotional companions
By Tony Tecate

Yet another reason to get a dog … They are good for your heart. And not just for your emotional heart, for your actual ticker.

A study from Uppsala University in Sweden found that having a dog reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, other health problems, and even helps you live longer – especially those living alone.

The study found that single dog owners are 33% less likely to die than people who don’t own dogs.

Need some encouragement?   There is free pet adoption at Sac SPCA for the rest of the year thanks to a charitable donor.
