Dog owners have reduced risk of dying from heart problems, says researcher Why having a dog is actually good for your heart

This gap was even more pronounced among dog owners who had survived a heart attack, whose risk of death was 65 per cent lower than non-owners.

So what precisely is it about proudly owning a dog that can perchance perchance perchance form of us dwell longer?

A study out this week in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, published by the American Heart Association, finds new evidence that dog ownership is linked with longer lives in their owners.

Owning a dog may not only enable you to have companionship and live a happier life but could also help you live longer.

In a study of dog-owning and non-dog owning survivors of heart attacks or strokes, researchers determined that dog owners across the board experienced lower rates of death from heart attacks or strokes.

"The most interesting part of this study was that people who lived alone actually seem to get the greatest benefit in both the heart attack group and the stroke group", said pet owner Dr. Martha Gulati, who is the editor-in-chief of CardioSmart.org, the American College of Cardiology's patient education platform.

"Keeping a dog is a good motivation for physical activity, which is an important factor in rehabilitation and mental health", said Tove Fall, professor at Uppsala University in Sweden.

So if you don't have a dog, you might want consider remedying that situation. "Lots of analysis non-public shown that procuring a dog perforce increases physical disaster (as anybody who has unsuccessfully tried to sleep previous the time of a dog's routine morning scurry can attest)", Kazi writes.

Although both studies are observational and would require a clinical trial to be proven, the AHA marks the findings as significant. Gulati asked. "Is it because you're exercising or is it because there is a difference in the type of person who would choose to have a dog versus somebody who would not?" It goes to also very neatly be the case that being more healthy and wealthier causes of us to be more inclined to manufacture a dog.

Included in the studies is information provided by the American Heart Association media release that associates dog ownership with increased longevity and less feelings of isolation. It might be possible, for instance, that doctors might someday prescribe ownership of a dog to certain vulnerable patients, based on a new evidence-based policy. Merely petting a dog - notably a neatly-diagnosed one - lowers a individual's blood stress.

However, the AHA also says that pet ownership is a caring commitment that comes with certain financial costs and responsibilities, so "the primary goal of adopting, rescuing, or purchasing a pet" should not be to reduce cardiovascular risk. "Maybe it's not the dog itself, it's that people already have a healthier lifestyle before".
