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)

Handlers of therapy and/or facility dogs working within hospital settings have experienced various barriers and challenges within their practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Animal-assisted interventions, specifically therapeutic working dogs, are a valued source of support to individuals, communities, hospital settings, and disaster sites during times of community distress. The purpose of this study was to identify barriers and solutions to the continued use of animal-assisted therapeutic interventions in support of patients and families within the hospital setting during the COVID-19 pandemic. This researchers position within the research is the knowledge and experience of being a facility dog handler within the hospital setting during the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualitative research was performed utilizing an investigator written questionnaire. Participants were chosen from purposeful sampling of dog handler teams to recognize the impact that this global crisis has made particularly to the practice of
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 ...

Animals Asias Dr Dog is an innovative animal-assisted therapy programme that provides people in need with what they need most - a best friend. The programme is also changing the way people feel about dogs. In China, where we focus our work, Dr Dog is challenging beliefs and changing lives for animals. As more people come to understand that dogs have feelings, both physical and emotional, more people are standing up against the cruel trade in dogs (and cats) for their meat.. Through Dr Dog, registered therapy dogs are visiting hospitals, homes for the elderly, disabled centres, orphanages and schools in three mainland Chinese cities and Hong Kong. We have also introduced Dr Dog to Taiwan, the Philippines, India, Japan and Malaysia by providing local animal-welfare groups with training and advice to run their own programmes independently.. Our Dr Dogs give patients the feeling that they are special. Patients know their loyal furry friends wont judge them for the way they look or for their ...
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..

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.

Dr Eddie on an animal-assisted therapy visit. Because of his market background and featuring in our Friends...or Food campaign, Eddie quickly became our Dr Dog Ambassador too - although in truth he was the worst canine doctor in the world.

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 ...

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 ...

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).

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.
