Embrace Pet Insurance recently announced that it has become an official supporter of the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) and its research on the human health benefits of companion animals.
“When pet owners become part of the Embrace family, we strive to strengthen the human-animal bond, especially when pet parents need it most. By supporting HABRI, Embrace Pet Insurance is proudly helping to advance human-animal bond research that demonstrates the positive role that healthy pets play in our lives.”
— Ambrish Jaiswal, CEO, Embrace Pet Insurance
Scientific evidence increasingly shows that pets improve heart health, alleviate depression, increase well-being, support child health and development, and contribute to healthy aging. In addition, companion animals can assist in the treatment of a broad range of conditions from post-traumatic stress to Alzheimer’s disease to autism spectrum disorder.
The benefits of the human-animal bond impact more than just human health. Findings from a recent HABRI survey of 2,000 pet owners demonstrate that knowledge of the scientific research on the human-animal bond motivates pet owners to take better care of their pets. From providing pets with higher quality nutrition to purchasing pet health insurance, spreading awareness of the health benefits of pet ownership improves pet health and welfare.
