Introduction to Health and the Human-Animal Bond

Abstract

The role of a pet has developed over the years from that of a simple outdoor guardian or mouse-catcher to one of a true companion and family member. Dogs, cats, and other pets have become an integral part of our everyday lives, and the relationship that exists between humans and animals has become known as the human-animal bond.
