‘Helping Animals Heal People’ isn’t just a clever tagline. It’s a real thing. This is just a sample of the hundreds of medical case studies that validate the benefit of animal assisted activities (AAA), animal assisted therapy (AAT) and service dogs.
We carefully curate medical studies that are part of the The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, which consists of over 6,000 member organizations nationwide. The mission of the NLM is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by: 1) providing all U.S. health professionals equal access to biomedical information and, 2) improving the public’s access to information, enabling them to make informed decisions about their health and healthcare.
