Mainstreaming animal-assisted therapy. (2/13)

The term animal-assisted therapy (AAT) commonly refers to the presentation of an animal to one or more persons for the purpose of providing a beneficial impact on human health or well-being. AAT is an ideal example of "One Health" because of numerous studies and widespread testimonials indicating that many humans feel better in the presence of pets and other domesticated animals, and, conversely, that some of those creatures appear to respond positively to human company for their emotional and perhaps physical betterment. Many AAT studies have claimed a wide range of human health benefits, but much of the research is characterized by small-scale interventions among disparate fields, resulting in criticisms about weak study design or inconsistent methodology. Such criticisms contrast with the strongly held belief among many that interaction with friendly animals has a strong and innate value for the persons involved. Consequently the appeal of AAT in human medicine today may be generally characterized as a "push" by enthusiastic advocates rather than a "pull" by prescribing physicians. To fully integrate AAT into conventional medical practice as an accepted therapeutic modality, more convincing intervention studies are necessary to confirm its clinical merits, along with an understanding of the underlying mechanism of the human response to the company of friendly animals.  (+info)

A Finnish study published in 2006, which surveyed 21,000 Finnish adults aged 20 to 54, is one of the few independent studies that has looked at the effects of pets on the general population. In this hypothesis-testing study, scientists Leena K. Koivusilta and Ansa Ojanlatva showed that pet owners are sick more often and do a below-average amount of exercise: 26% of the pet owners in the study were overweight, compared with 21% for those who did not have pets; 16% of the pet owners exercised less than once a month in comparison to 2% for those without pets. The risk of having health problems is 10% to 20% higher in pet owners than in non-pet owners, even when factors such as age and socio-economic level are considered. This is comparable to the risk in bachelors, widowers, and divorcees. Overall, this study associated pet ownership with poor, rather than good, health. (27 ...

Marian R. Banks, Center for Human Nutrition, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.. The term "nursing home" is often a misnomer. The typical nursing home is more institution than home and run more like a hospital than a household. Indeed, the American Heritage dictionary defines "nursing home" as "a hospital for convalescent or aged people" (emphasis ours). Yet many of us will spend a good portion of the last part of our lives in these institutions. How can these last years be made as enjoyable and meaningful as possible? We recently published a study examining the effects of animal-assisted therapy (AAT) on loneliness among nursing home residents. The statistical aspect of that study has been published elsewhere and it showed, among other things, that AAT can reduce loneliness.1 However, during the course of that study we learned several lessons that couldnt be reduced to statistics. Here, we review some of the things we learned about making long-term care facilities more ...
In addition, non-pharmacological treatment can help with the symptoms of dementia. These treatments include psychological and cognitive therapies (such as cognitive stimulation therapy), which can be used to improve memory skills in people living with dementia. Alternative therapies such as the therapeutic use of music or dancing, animal-assisted therapy, aromatherapy, massage and multi-sensory stimulation may help with the behavioural symptoms of dementia, and treatment can be tailored to individual needs.. I am delighted to see this inclusion, especially since our Cochrane Systematic Review (Karkou & Meekums) is well underway, of DMT for dementia. We recently presented our research at a day conference in Cambridge, organised by ICRA. The depression review (Meekums, Karkou & Nelson) was published earlier this year.. There is still much to do, including the establishment in peoples minds of the differences between dance and DMP, before our profession receives the recognition it deserves, but ...

Zoey Vega reaches out to greet her therapy dog Angus during her treatment session.. Four-year-old Zoey Vega was scared when she started chemotherapy last month for kidney cancer. But two Thursday visits with a furry friend seem to have eased her fears."She tells everyone she has a dog named Angus," says Corina Vasquez, Zoeys mom. "She talks about him all the time. The dog takes her mind off chemo.". Zoey is among a select group of young patients at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center who is part of a novel study examining the effects of animal-assisted therapy on patients, their families and the therapy dogs themselves.. UC Davis is one of five childrens hospitals in the U.S., and the only in California, participating in the 12-month clinical trial, pioneered by Zoetis Inc., an animal pharmaceutical company, and the American Humane Association (AHA)..

A master of escape too, he could put Houdini to shame as he wriggled out of the tightest collar or harness, before heading off towards the doors when hed decided that hed had enough adoration for one day.

Background: Dogs are the most common companion animal, and therefore not surprisingly a popular choice for animal-assisted interventions. Dog-assisted interventions are increasingly used in healthcare. The aim of the review was to conduct a systematic literature review of quantitative studies on dog-assisted interventions in healthcare, with the intention of assessing the effects and cost-effectiveness of the interventions for different categories of patients. Methods: A systematic review of the scientific literature reporting results of studies in healthcare, nursing home or home care settings, was conducted. The inclusion criteria applied for this review were: quantitative studies, inclusion of at least 20 study subjects, existence of a control and performed in healthcare settings including nursing homes and home care. The electronic databases PubMed, AMED, CINAHL and Scopus were searched from their inception date through January 2017, for published articles from peer-reviewed journals with ...
The trend, which has accelerated hugely since its initial stirrings a few decades ago, is underpinned by a widespread belief that interaction with animals can reduce distress. Certainly, the groups offering up pets think this, as do some mental health professionals. But the popular embrace of pets as therapists is kindling growing discomfort among researchers in the field, who say it has raced far ahead of scientific evidence.. Earlier this year in the Journal of Applied Developmental Science, an introduction to a series of articles on "animal-assisted intervention" said research into its efficacy "remains in its infancy.". A recent literature review by Molly Crossman, a Yale University doctoral candidate who recently wrapped up one study involving an 8-year-old dog named Pardner, cited a "murky body of evidence" that sometimes has shown positive short-term effects, and occasionally identified higher rates of distress.. Overall, Crossman wrote, animals seem to be helpful in a "small-to-medium" ...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of the present review was threefold: to address the current state of Animal-Assisted Interactions (AAI) within the military; to summarize recent literature (within the past three years) in the field of AAI; and to discuss trends in AAI research since 2014. RECENT FINDINGS: With regard to AAI within the military, several canine interaction programs have been utilized to assist service members in coping with various issues. Therapy dogs have been deployed with Combat-Operational Stress Control units; they have been integrated into medical clinics and behavioral health treatment programs in garrison; and policy has been developed to address the use of therapy animals in military treatment facilities ...

Many drugs can cause psychiatric symptoms, but a causal connection is often difficult to establish. Psychiatric symptoms that emerge during drug treatment could also be due to the underlying illness, previously unrecognized psychopathology, or psychosocial factors. The withdrawal of some drugs can cause symptoms such as anxiety, psychosis, delirium, agitation or depression.. THE TABLES - The following tables list some drug classes and some specific drugs reported to cause psychiatric symptoms. Such symptoms are reported uncommonly with most of the drugs listed. Alcohol, hallucinogens and other drugs not generally used for medical treatment in the US are not included. Withdrawal reactions in patients dependent on opioids and physiological reactions to drugs such as insulin have also been omitted. The table is limited to psychiatric symptoms reported with single drugs, but drug interactions can also cause such symptoms (The Medical Letter Adverse Drug Interactions Program).

Predicate rules describe the records that must be maintained for regulated activities such as PET drug manufacturing. A complete list of predicate rules for FDG manufacturing can be found in the cGMP regulations 21CFR212 (see above).. Of particular interest for new or small labs is the discussion of paper vs. electronic records. The FDA does not state a preference and does not recommend one strategy over the other. The difference is that systems based on paper storage are simpler, cheaper and easier to set up and maintain.. Typical paper storage methods include notebooks for incoming raw materials and ring binders for recording cleaning, maintenance, and stock inspections. Forms are usually printed from the computer before the activity begins. Data is entered by hand and initialed or signed. Storage does not have to be elegant or fast as long as the records can be produced if requested by auditors. Offsite storage is common.. Records can be kept electronically too - but the regulations covering ...

This story originally appeared in High Country News.. When Im 90, Ill probably still be haunted by memories of bins overflowing with the remnants of hiking snacks and thinly wrapped dog turds, left to bake for a week in black plastic bags.. As a student employee at the McDonald Research Forest, seven miles from Corvallis and one of seven research forests run by Oregon State University, I was sometimes given the task of tugging such stinking bags from receptacles and heaving them into the bed of a pickup truck. This was not pleasant, but I took solace in knowing that people cared enough to stick their trash in a designated container. In 2015, however, when I was involved in a public awareness campaign about dog behavior, I found the whole issue of dogs unleashed a lot of anger - some of it mine.. The reason for the campaign: As the number of visits to the McDonald Forest increased from an estimated 7,500 visits in 1980, to 105,000 when last surveyed in 2009, the number of dog-related incidents ...
All of these outlets offer incentives to pet owners.

Target s PetRx program, available in more than 1,200 of its instore pharmacies, can fill veterinary prescriptions for animal-specific medications, and all Target pharmacies will fill pet scripts for human drugs (they offer many $4 generics, as well). At Walgreens, you can add your dog to your $35-a-year family membership in the discount pharmacy program.

The Service Dog handler hears MANY dog stories every day. A single trip to a large store means up 15 dog stories per hour and hearing "dog" up to 100 times per hour.-(my own actual stats kept from years of trying to go out and live my life). Can we stand another dog story? Yes, but try to make it a happy one instead of telling us about the dog that just got run over, or looked exactly like ours and had to be put down. Its interesting to us that your cousins best friend has a service dog but we dont necessarily need comparisons such as: "I know most people who have service dogs are blind and you are not blind-are you?-so that means you probably dont need your dog as much as well, if you were actually blind.. Finally, PLEASE avoid the one thing we hear many times per week: "I just cant stand to be away from my dog I love him so much. I went out and bought a Service Dog vest so he could go on vacation with me.": UGH! Thanks for letting me know you are making my life more difficult by bringing ...

An Orange County elementary school must allow a 7-year-old boy who suffers from severe autism to bring his service dog to school, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.. Parents of the boy -- who doesnt speak, frequently gets anxious and has pinched and scratched others -- sued the Cypress School District, claiming their son was being discriminated against for his disability when officials refused to allow him to bring his service dog.. The dog, Eddy, was trained for two years, beginning when he was 8 weeks old, to help the boy from wandering off and to detect his mood and intervene if he starts feeling anxious.. The school district had argued that Eddy does not qualify as a service dog under federal statutes, and that his presence could disrupt school activities and be burdensome for staff.. Judge Andrew Guilford granted a preliminary injunction in favor of the student, identified as C.C. in court papers, finding that keeping the boy and the dog apart during school hours could diminish their bond and ...

Psychiatric Service Dogs assist those with "invisible disabilities" such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, social phobias, autism, developmental delays, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Many of our applicants have experienced trauma from physical or sexual abuse or assault, suffer from anxiety or social phobias that limit their independence and capacity to function in public, have trauma from combat (veterans), or suffer from chronic psychiatric conditions that have limited their ability to thrive in society. Service tasks taught for such conditions include: signaling for behavior, such as nudging when dissociative behavior begins; standing between the guardian and others when in public to increase personal space; performing behaviors that give the appearance of being protective, such as "watch my back" (though service dogs are never taught to actually be protective or perform guarding behaviors); turning on lights before entering ...
According to the Veterans this is how the event unfolded:. "On Wednesday, September 04, 2013, I, Amanda Houser, and Holly Bolesky went to grab a bite to eat at my local Long John Silvers (hereby referred to as LJS). We entered the establishment, waited in line behind another couple for approximately two or three minutes, and then approached the counter to order our dinner.. We ordered, and our receipt is stamped at 1900:00:29 pm, todays date. We grabbed our drink cups and went to fill them, then sat down at a table to wait. After sitting at this table for approximately two to three minutes, the person we later learned was the Manager on Duty approached us and stated that we could not have dogs inside the restaurant.. I informed her that they were service dogs and that everything was okay. She said that "folks have allergies" and that she couldnt allow dogs inside and that we would have to leave. At this point, another customer at the table next to us said that these were service dogs and that ...
ARLINGTON, Va. - The saying goes all dogs go to heaven, but for many service dogs, their time on earth is spent helping people who have seen more than the average human being. Such is the case for Master Sgt. Leigh Michel and her service dog Lizzy.
Although noncommunicable diseases have caused a considerable burden on public health worldwide, infectious and parasitic diseases are still responsible for an unfathomable impact on human and animal health. Moreover, with the advent of molecular biology, new infectious and parasitic diseases are continuously being discovered, and emerging zoonoses are being identified. To address this complex scenario in toto, a holistic and multifaceted approach is required. This brings us to the concept of "One Health Medicine", which is the order of the day in the field of public health. This concept invites public health professionals, human health and veterinary clinicians to adopt a global approach when dealing with health risks resulting from human-animal interactions. The book "Human-Animal Medicine, Clinical Approaches to Zoonoses, Toxicants and Other Shared Health Risks" comes to consolidate this approach, in practice.. The book is organized into 14 chapters authored by one or more of 23 contributors. ...
First, while there is good research showing the benefits of service assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities, there is little evidence for the use of service assistance dogs, let alone emotional support dogs, in mental illness. How are service dogs and emotional support dogs different? Service dogs are trained intensively by professionals for many months to perform specific tasks for people with disabilities. For example, trainers teach service dogs to open doors and turn on lights for people with physical disabilities. The dogs might serve as ears for hearing-impaired people or as eyes for someone who is visually impaired. Service dogs also can be trained as skilled companions for people with intellectual disabilities or mental illness. By contrast, an emotional support dog is not trained to do any specific tasks related to a disability, but rather provides a therapeutic benefit to its owner through companionship ...

Humans and animals are in regular and at times close contact in modern intensive farming systems. The quality of human-animal interactions can have a profound impact on the productivity and welfare of farm animals. Interactions by humans may be neutral, positive or negative in nature. Regular pleasant contact with humans may result in desirable alterations in the physiology, behaviour, health and productivity of farm animals. On the contrary, animals that were subjected to aversive human contact were highly fearful of humans and their growth and reproductive performance could be compromised. Farm animals are particularly sensitive to human stimulation that occurs early in life, while many systems of the animals are still developing. This may have long-lasting impact and could possibly modify their genetic potential. The question as to how human contact can have a positive impact on responses to stressors, and productivity is not well understood. Recent work in our laboratory suggested that pleasant
The NIH action was triggered after it learned that scientists had begun such experiments with support from other funding sources, including from Californias state stem-cell agency. The human-animal mixtures are being created by injecting human stem cells into days-old animal embryos, then gestating these in female livestock. Because chimeras could provide a new supply of organs for needy patients and also lead to basic discoveries, researchers including Garry say they intend to press forward despite the NIH position. In November, he was one of 11 authors who published a letter criticizing the agency for creating "a threat to progress" that "casts a shadow of negativity" on their work ...
Human-animal hybrids have existed only in our imagination fueled by vivid mythological creatures, most popular being the mermaids and the centaurs. So when scientists showed an active interest in mixing human and animal genes, mainly to mass produce vital hormones like insulin, and drugs and organs suitable for organ transplantations, it was interpreted widely as an attempt to create monsters which could be half-human-half-animal. Thus the term Para-human became popular as an informal reference ...
Todays short post from nccih.nih.gov (see link below) is an extremely sensible piece of advice for those people looking for alternative or complementary therapies. Although good advice in general, it especially applies to neuropathy patients. When a disease doesnt have a cure and the medications are of limited benefit, people start searching for alternatives to relieve their condition. Nerve damage patients will recognise themselves here. However, not all complementary therapies or therapists are safe and its vital for your safety (and for your wallet!) that you do your research first. This article is nothing but common sense. You may feel that your home doctor, or specialist will somehow frown on your efforts but they are fully aware of the failings of neuropathy treatment and should support you by giving you the information they have available...without criticism. Also, if something goes wrong and you suffer some adverse medical reaction, its important that they know what course youve ...
Now you may confused by these two passage because what the relative theory between the dogs and the Seizure patient. Seizure can be avoided easily by dogs, because they will intimate the patient before Seizure by alerting them in such a way by circling, pawing, barking, or other similar behaviors. They know the Seizure before it happen within a few minutes to an hour before it strikes.. All the dogs cant do these things only the specialized dogs can do it; they are trained in such a way to analyze the Seizure before it comes. This service dogs are well trained by the well masters, during training some dogs will be specially trained because of their ability to do all fast and some dogs either do not catch on to the training.. Every Seizure patient no need to carry a service dogs all the time, which is specially for those who affected by the Seizure infrequently and who will get the Seizure randomly because all the times a person cant go with them in that situation the service dogs will help, in ...
There is actually no such thing as "certifying" a service dog. The IAADP states that a service dog must know at least 2 tasks that mitigate the handlers disability, have at least 120 hours of training, and 30 hours of public access work. This means getting them used to everything and anything, like taking them to crowded areas, passing another dog, going to movies, attending their handler to doctors appointments, all while being focused on their handler/ being relaxed or sleeping when necessary, as well as "tucking" under their owner in public setting to remain as unnoticeable as possible and out of the way.. 5.

I will tell you it is a lot of work to have your service dog with you. People do ask for you to explain or to interact with your working dog. You have to be mindful of the dogs needs as well as remind all service providers that there is a law protecting the right to be accompanied by a service dog. If there is someone "faking" it then they are certainly not taking an easy out just to have their dog with them. Im usually happy to answer questions and educate. But, it is draining. Some people have disabilities that make this communication next to impossible. I think the public just wants to know more and most likely wishes we had a more dog tolerant culture and society. But, rarely have I experienced anyone evaluating my right to have a service dog or my need for one. I try to use levity when I can and only on a few occasions have I had to be firm with someone. I simply explained that without my dog I could have a seizure on the spot. Which would be less objectionable: A person having a seizure ...

I was at a residents meeting in this building today, the regular monthly meeting, and it was announced that there are several service dogs and a service cat in the building.

There are those exceptional cats like Howies cat Sam, of course, but Im not talking about her. Just wondered if anyone can

Once youve made your decision and bring home a new pet, you want that pet to grow accustomed to their new home, regardless of what other pets live in it. Begin by confining your existing cat or dog and allowing you new pet to wander the house as they please. This will help your new pet feel comfortable in their surroundings, and allow them to get used to the smell of your current pet. Once your new pet seems comfortable, switch places and confine the new pet but let the existing one run free, allowing him or her to get used to the scent of the new pet ...

Introduction: Brachytherapy is one of the most common treatment modalities for gynecological cancer. The GZP6 brachytherapy system is one of the devices utilized in Iran. It has been considered particularly due to its low cost compared to other more complete and established systems. This system has some deficiencies including lack of a treatment planning software for non-predefined treatments, inability to change the gradually changeable dosimetric variables and using a point source estimation in dose calculation. This report presents a complementary treatment planning software (CTPS) to the systems own dedicated program. Material and Methods: First, the dosimetric characteristics of three GZP6 sources were calculated based on the TG-43 protocol using the MCNP4C Monte Carlo code. Then, the calculated dose distribution around the implanted applicators, based on the selected dwell positions and dwell times, was shown in a graphical user interface (GUI) written using the MATLAB software. Results: The

The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is pleased that the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) is considering an end to the moratorium on NIH funding of human-animal chimera research involving the introduction of human pluripotent cells into early stage animal embryos (NIH Notice, 8-4-16).. "Historically, the study of animal models containing human cells has produced valuable insights into human biology and disease," said ISSCR president Sally Temple. "Research using chimeras can be transformative," she said. "Scientists will be able to gain new understandings of human development, generate disease models that can be studied and tested, and potentially develop human organs that can be used for transplantation. We are confident that rigorous, responsibly-monitored research in this area will lead to great advances in science, and to developments for the field of regenerative medicine," she said..

5 Tips for Caring for Senior Dogs. Weve had so many, our place resembles a canine geriatric home. Heres what weve learned.. Kate OBrien. We have had a senior dog household since 2003, when our chocolate Lab, Sally, turned eight. At the time we had another dog, Tino, who was just a year younger. Tino and Sally have passed within the past few years, and weve debated whether we should adopt a puppy, a young adult, or a senior to add to our family. Weve opted for seniors.. The first senior we adopted was Becca. She was a beautiful black Lab and an owner-surrendered service dog. She was 10 years of age, and given that our other dog, Tino, was blind, we thought Beccas calm demeanor and near-perfect service dog behavior would be well suited for him. A rambunctious puppy just wouldnt work. Becca was the right match.. When Tino passed a few years later, we again debated the pros and cons of puppy vs. adult vs. senior, but we had seen firsthand the benefits of an older dog, and we knew that once ...

Autism spectrum disorders are a group of developmental disabilities characterized by atypical development in behavior, communication skills, and socialization. These disorders include autistic disorder (autism), Asperger disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified. Children who have the latter two disorders have fewer and milder symptoms compared with autism.. In the Canadian study, Sonia Lupien, senior researcher and a professor at the University of Montreal Department of Psychiatry and Director of the Centre for Studies on Human Stress at Louis-H. Lafontaine Hospital, explained that "our findings showed that the dogs had a clear impact on the childrens stress hormone levels. I have not seen such a dramatic effect before.". Lupien noted that this study was the first to measure the physiological impact of service dogs on children with autism. "Our results lend support to the potential behavioural benefits of service dogs for autistic children." In the United States, ...

Researchers first grew human embryonic stem cells in the lab in 1998, and policy on stem cells and human-animal chimeras followed two years later.. In August 2000, under President Bill Clinton, the NIH published a final rule that prohibited funding "[r]esearch in which human pluripotent stem cells are combined with an animal embryo," along with providing the first guidelines for the kind of stem cell research that the agency would fund.. Since scientists hadnt yet developed induced pluripotent stem cells, this rule only applied to embryonic stem cells.. On Aug. 9, 2001, President George W. Bush limited the scope of stem cell research that could be federally funded to experiments using embryonic stem cell lines that had been derived prior to that day, among other limitations.. In November 2001, his administration also revoked the 2000 rule. But an NIH spokesperson told us, "The policy that was in place under President Bush did not address human-animal chimeras specifically, and therefore did not ...
The Overview paper will describe briefly the 10-year Public - Private Partnership (PPP) between the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the Mars Corporations Waltham Centre for Pet Nutrition, and will provide a broad overview of the research supported by this partnership over the past decade. The workshops, research solicitations, and resulting research and publications over those 10 years have moved the field toward the use of more rigorous designs and methods, raising the bar for research in Human-Animal Interaction (HAI). The field has been more widely recognized, addressing not only interactions with pets and the social-emotional benefits generally, but also potential mechanisms for those quantifiable effects, as well as intervention studies including randomized controlled trials. There has been an increased focus on the health benefits of interaction with animals, and increased attention to the effects
