A hospital in the city of Hamilton in Canada is allowing cats and dogs to visit loved ones when they are sick. Hospitals do not normally allow #PawsForHealing meetings because of the risk of cross infection.

However, in recent years some hospitals authorities have become aware of the great therapeutic benefit a cat or dog can bring to a patient. Visits by specially trained therapy animals are arranged by some. Allowing a patient’s own pet to visit is less common and it is necessary to carefully manage the risk of cross infection. However, the benefits and pleasure this can be bring far outweigh the extra effort.
