Abstract

This form of therapy has numerous health benefits on the physical and mental welfare of people, and it can be practiced in many ways to suit their individual needs. However, what many tend to forget is that the welfare of the animals must also be prioritized. Also, despite the growing research on the subject, there's still plenty of areas where the research can be improved. With both the pros and the cons in mind, it's important to come up with new solutions, backed by academic evidence and research, about how to improve the field so that that animal-assisted therapy can be beneficial for all.
