Pets and Your Health

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) over 150 million Americans have dogs or cats — yet pets frequently go unnoticed as a health and wellness ally, which is a shame considering the many benefits that come with having a pet in the family.

"Pets can be better than pills for decreasing stress, lowering cholesterol, and decreasing blood pressure as well as elevating the feel-good hormones that benefit our emotional health," says Carlyn Montes De Oca, author of the #1 Amazon bestseller Dog as My Doctor, Cat as My Nurse: An Animal Lover’s Guide to a Healthy, Happy & Extraordinary Life (April 18, 2017).

Dog as My Doctor, Cat as My Nurse shines a light on the many unique, unexpected, and priceless ways that our animal companions enhance every aspect of human health and well-being.

Filled with practical tips, sage wisdom, and real-life stories (including the author’s own), this animal lover’s guide to a healthy, happy, and extraordinary life, allows the reader to experience the vast landscape of health to heal the entire body, mind, and spirit.

The perfect gift for dog lovers, 10% of the proceeds of Dog as My Doctor, Cat as My Nurse will be donated to animal charities.

Carlyn Montes De Oca is an author, speaker, acupuncturist, plant-based nutritional consultant, and animal-human health expert. She is also the founder of The Animal-Human Health Connection, focusing on bringing awareness to the many powerful ways that animals enhance human health, happiness, and longevity.
