Abstract

This chapter describes two areas that show the significance of indirect costs associated with companion animals: (i) the effect of companion animal ownership on human health (considering examples relating to the physical, mental and social health of people) and its economic implications and (ii) the additional health benefits of economic value provided by animal-assisted interventions and the wider support of individuals with increased need in UK society.
