Pet Therapy at Austin Trace

April 10, 2021
Is medicine going to the dogs at Austin Trace? Well, yes, but in a good way! Cinderoo, the Corgi, visited with our residents and offered a little love, comfort and enjoyment for the day! They were offered the opportunity to pet Roo and visit. After each visit, we've seen such beautiful smiles! What a charming canine that gained so many friends at our facility. They can't wait for her return!

Pet therapy and activities is a growing field that uses animals to help people recover and cope with health problems or just brightens their day and outlook. Animal assisted activities offer comfort to the residents and family alike when they see their loved ones getting emotional support.

Interacting with a friendly pet can reduce blood pressure and release endorphins that produce a calming effect. It's been known to motivate people to recover and exercise improving motor skills and joint movement. It can improve overall cardiovascular health. Animals are truly known healers by lifting spirits and offering their unconditional love in exchange for hugs. We're looking forward to spending more time with Cinderoo as she becomes a familiar face to our residents!
