SEVEN WAYS PETS ARE BETTER THAN PILLS
Have you ever had a bad day and come home ready to blow your top? Have you noticed how that frustration melts into a puddle as you gaze into your loyal pet’s golden brown eyes?
What better way to soothe aches/pains and symptoms of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme, lupus, cancer, etc.? Our pets have the amazing ability to melt pain with simple wags and purrs.
We know they can do it so does the how really matter? Maybe not. And, we don’t even need to know why! Let’s just stick with, “because they love us.” And, there’s no doubt that the feeling’s mutual!
For this reason, I’ve come up with a short list of Why Pets are Better than Prescriptive Pills. Although there are lots of reasons, I’ll start with just seven. Add yours to the list and we’ll see how many we can come up with!
2–Giving a pet a bath is the quickest way to forget that stubborn ache in your knee (or toe, or whatever…).
3–The addiction to playing with or stroking your pet is not only healthy, it’s a good thing!
4–There’s no unsafe level or overdose danger for the time spent with your pet.
5–Even if the label is mis-typed – and it turns out your cockapoo is more of a doxiepoo – there are no lethal consequences from the mix-up.
6–An afternoon picking up dog poo at the park, beach, or lake, still trumps an afternoon in line at the pharmacy
7–Even though a dropped pill can bounce like mad on the kitchen floor, there’s no comparison to the entertainment value of a cat chasing a feather or a dog chasing a laser pointer. Hours of laughs — no prescription required!
