(DogFull.Com) Dogs and cats are visiting their loved ones in hospital and it’s just what the doctors ordered! A hospital in Hamilton, Ontario is allowing pets to visit families when they are sick. Families can put their pets on the visitor’s list for Juravinski Hospital thanks to a program begun by Donna Jenkins.
Since the program began, 25 visits have taken place between Intensive Care patients and their pets. When the pets visit the hospital they are thoroughly cleaned and brought in on a covered, wheeled cart. They are kept away from all other patients during their one hour visits.
Pets and their parents are both benefiting from their time together! I certainly hope this type of program is adopted at more hospitals!
