“What they found was that those dog owners actually had a lower risk of having recurrent cardiovascular events.” [:07]

The study looks at more than one-hundred eighty thousand people between the ages of forty and eighty-five, who had previously suffered a hear attack or stroke.

Results show dog owners who lived alone, had a 33% reduced risk of death when compared with people who suffered a heart attack and lived alone without a dog.

Doctor Laffin says the relationship between dog ownership and heart health makes sense.

Dogs typically have to go for walks, which gets you out the door and moving, which is good for heart health.

Dogs also provide companionship, so it’s possible that dog owners have less loneliness.

Previous studies show depression and loneliness can increase the risk of heart disease.

But if you can’t own a dog –don’t worry.

Doctor Laffin says people can still mimic the benefits of owning one for the sake of their heart health.

“They can go out for regular physical activity –maybe a walk, jog or even classes like yoga, swimming –those are all great activities that you don’t need a dog to do.” [:10]

Doctor Laffin says getting more physical activity on a regular basis can go a long way towards better heart health and longevity.
