Research has confirmed what every pet owner knows, which is that interaction with animals can be therapeutic. In that it can reduce stress levels and improve a person's sense of well being. So, don't be surprised if next time you visit a patient in the hospital, and there is already a visitor in the room with four legs. We have two guests here today to talk about the pet therapy program. Cayce Kaufman is Covenant's regional patient experience director, and Melinda Hatler is with a group called Critters 4 Christ.
