  12. Behavioral and cardiac responses by dogs to physical human-dog contact

    Contributor(s):: Kuhne, F., Hossler, J. C., Struwe, R.

    Measures of behavioral responses and cardiovascular parameters to evaluate and assess animal well-being are well established. A major aspect of companion animal well-being seems to originate from direct human-animal interaction. For pet dogs, the manner in which they obtain and respond to petting...

    Contributor(s):: Das, S., O'Keefe, J. H.

  14. Benefits of pet therapy introduced to cardiac rehabilitation patients

    Contributor(s):: Angela Joy Felker

    This study was designed to measure the beneficial effects of a pet therapy program on a population of older adult cardiac rehabilitation patients. It was hypothesized that participants who received an interactive pet therapy session would have lower blood pressure and heart rate prior to and...

  15. Cardiorespiratory and Biomechanical Changes with Hippotherapy in Children with and without Cerebral Palsy

    Contributor(s):: B.R. Rigby, A.R. Gloekner, S. Papadakis, A.A. Bane, J.S. Forsse, A.E. Bird, T.R. Willard, D.L. Bullinger, R.R. Rogers, K.D. Biggerstaff, P.W. Grandjean
