  • Dogs And Physical Therapy: How An Injured Athlete Can Benefit From A Trained Pit Bull

    10 pages in length. The notion of animal-assisted therapy is hardly a new idea, inasmuch as it has become an instrumental component of both the physical and emotional well being throughout the health care industry. From nursing homes to hospitals to physical rehabilitation, animals have proven at least just as - if not more - effective at helping individuals regain use of their bodies and create happiness in their minds.

Bibliography lists 8 sources.
