Pet therapy builds on the pre-existing human-animal bond. Interacting with a friendly pet like Allegro can help you physically and emotionally.  It can help reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health.  It can release oxytocin which produces a calming effect.  The release of endorphins can also help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve your overall psychological state.  Some other benefits include but are not limited to increased self-esteem, increased verbal communication, development of social skills, decreased feelings of loneliness, reduced anxiety, and increased willingness to engage in empathic interaction.
