Doctor Polucki Family Health Hour – March 31, 2014
Today on the Doctor Polucki Family Health Hour Dr. Polucki and Toni Polucki talked about pets and pet companionship.
Pets may help their humans prevent having a heart attack, according to the American Heart Association.
It’s good to know there’s scientific evidence to measure and confirm some of the human health benefits of pet companionship.
Pets love us unconditionally unless we mistreat them. Otherwise, they are always happy just to be with us.
When you truly return your pet’s unconditional affection and companionship, you can unlock something special in your own body chemistry – a natural love drug that only shows up when the relationship isn’t just about you.
Men and women who take care of pets handle stress better, with fewer dangerous spikes in blood pressure.
Children get sick less often when there’s a family dog, mainly because pets bring germs into the household and positively challenge the family’s immune systems.
Dr Polucki and Toni Polucki had Dr. Annie Forslund on the program.
Dr Forslund was born and raised in the beautiful province of Quebec, Canada. Growing up, she immediately discovered a strong love for animals. She grew up with dogs, cats, hamsters and goldfish. She spent countless hours on a friend’s 500 acre land amongst horses, deer, peacocks, chickens, ponies, rabbits etc…
She graduated from the University of Montreal, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 1990 and practiced in Canada for the first few years of her career. She had her own veterinary hospital from 1992 to 2000 in Labrador City, Newfoundland, Canada.
For several years, she was the head veterinarian for the legendary Labrador 400 miles sled dog race.
After several years of northern living, she decided she was ready for warmer climates and moved to Southern California. She has been practicing in Southern California since 2000 and now dedicates her professional career to pet hospice care and in-home euthanasia.
