The doctor accepts payment in cash, check, or chew toys

Yesterday I mentioned a survey whose results proved something we already knew.

Well, another survey falling into the we-already-knew-that category shows that pets make us feel good. The study also goes one step further and shows that these positive emotional effects include reducing stress in measurable ways. But what makes this study so attention-worthy is that the subjects whose stress levels were measurably reduced by quality time with a pet were heart-attack survivors recuperating in a hospital.
