Pet Therapy and Chronic Pain

Posted on April 27, 2018

The bond between a pet and someone with chronic pain is lovingly mysterious. Pets can offer comfort and familiarity at home.

On MyChronicPainTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with chronic pain, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Pet therapy is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about pet therapy:

My beautiful dogs help me when I think there's no hope left.

Sometimes walking the dogs gives me pain later, but watching how much they love it cheers me up.

My two fur babies never fail to make me smile and are so full of unconditional love.

A member shares a story and a photo about Mr. Bailey, the therapy cat.

If it weren’t for my pets, I probably wouldn’t even get up in the morning.

Can you relate?

Yes, my cats are glued to me most of the time I've been off sick or feel particularly crap.
