Medibank Dogs' Day Out

October 27th, 2014

An exclusive Dogs’ Day Out event was held by Medibank Pet Insurance over the weekend for members and their furry friends at Centennial Park in Sydney.

Attending the member-only event was celebrity vet Dr Chris Brown, who spoke with owners about the benefits of owning a dog for their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

“Dogs have an extraordinary ability of making us feel needed and loved, especially in times of loneliness and stress,” says Dr Brown. “They also provide us with social support in a comforting way that a close friend or family member would. Just the simple act of patting and interacting with dogs can make us feel better.”

This was proven in new research that shows dog owners scored higher for their general health, vitality and social functioning compared to people that don’t own dogs.
