Clinical Trial Shows Benefits of Animal-Assisted Therapy in Adult Cancer Patients Undergoing Complex Cancer Treatment with Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy

  1. Katie Carroll

    Therapy dogs may improve the emotional well-being of some cancer patients, according to results of a clinical study, the first to document the benefits of animal-assisted therapy in adult cancer patients. The research was made available this week in the Journal of Community and Supportive Oncology.  Read more about the amazing results of the study by clicking here.

    I did a careful analysis of the cancer study. The finding were very weak and the design fatally flawed.  I hope this study does not become cited as showing that dogs help cancer patients deal with their treatments.  You can read my critique of the study here.  https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/animals-and-us/201502/dogs-cant-cure-cancer
