|Pet Therapy at All Children's|
Sometimes it takes more than medicine to meet the needs of the patients who are treated at All Children’s Hospital. Certified therapy dogs make rounds to provide their own kind of special care. In a hospital setting, the appearance of a dog can certainly change the atmosphere and provide a positive focus for patients, their families and staff alike. For those few minutes that the therapy dog is interacting with the patient, their mind is free of anxiety and stress related to their medical condition. This lightened mood can carry over to the rest of the day.How the Program Works
