Pet owners have probably known this all along, but don’t we love it when science backs our experience? Enough research has been carried out to prove that pet owners experience greater health and happiness.

Pet owners are also more socially engaged than non pet owners.
Check out these pets showering their little human owners with love and affection. How can this not be good for health?
