Girl Scout troop 1210 learns about the Human-Animal Bond

We were pleased to host Girl Scout Troop 1210 last week to help them work towards their animal helper patch. After a tour of the hospital, the girls met with Dr. Hoelter and learned and the Human-Animal Bond. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, The human-animal bond is a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals that is influenced by behaviors that are essential to the health and well-being of both. This includes, but is not limited to, emotional, psychological, and physical interactions of people, animals, and the environment. In order to help strengthen this bond, we work with clients to properly identify and correct behavioral as well as health issues. Our goal is to provide the resources that people need to ensure that their pets live long, healthy, and happy lives. Although the exact concept of the Human-Animal Bond is relatively new in Veterinary Medicine, Jefferson Animal Hospital has been Helping People and Pets Stay Healthy Together for over 30 years.

If your group or community organization has a need for animal care education, feel free to contact our office.
