A 1988 study of 22,000 men
and women found people

with few friends or family
have a death rate from two to
four times greater than peo-
ple of the same age with bet-
ter family/friendship connec-
tions. Dr. James House of U of
M states "the mortality data
makes it very clear that peo-
ple who have many social
relationships have a longer life

expectancy than do those
with few."
Sometimes families and
friends are not available. They
live far away and with work
and other obligations might
not visit as often. An addi-
tional bonding source that is
often overlooked is the
human-animal bond achieved
with a pet.
The human-animal bond
does more than give us a
richer life. It is also a medically
sound prescription. Resear-
chers have discovered that
heart patients residing with a
pet have a greater survival
rate than those who do not
live with an animal.
A pet may be more impor-

tant for a senior than a child
as the opportunities to
receive and give affection are
usually very limited for the

elderly. A senior will benefit
from having a pet depend
solely on him/her for food, af-
fection and shelter. The owner
must make a concerted effort
to get out of bed in the mor-
ning even if just to feed his/her
bird, fish or cat. Pets also
serve as a stimulus for the in-
take of food for the owner as
The human-animal bond is
an emotional link that once it
takes hold is nearly impossi-
ble to break. Life with a pet
becomes a shared ex-
perience. It consists of friend-
ship, companionship and
complete acceptance of each
other; a social dialogue that
encourages and promotes
longer life.
