The use of therapy dogs on patients with physical maladies has begun to be tested. Research has been done in areas such as those affected with heart failure, oncology patients, and individuals suffering from severe brain injuries. For example, a group at UCLA medical center performed a study on hospitalized patients with heart failure. Their results showed that patients who received a visit from a therapy dog displayed improved cardiopulmonary pressures, improved neurohormone levels, and reduced levels of anxiety. Another study, lead by Nathiana Silva and Flávia Osório, studied the effect of therapy dogs on children in outpatient oncological treatment. The results showed psychological progress including improvements in pain levels, irritation, stress, and depression. Additionally, those same children’s caregivers showed improved levels of anxiety, stress, mental confusion, and depression. Also, the Division of Neuropaediatrics at the University Children’s Hospital in Basel, Switzerland performed a study on the effects of therapy dogs on patients with brain injuries. Their participants reported increased alertness and concentration.
