Mandy is our therapy dog in the Palmyra office and greets everyone as they come into the clinic. She is a friend to everyone! Mandy is extremely patient and loving. Sometimes she just sits or lies quietly while being petted. She may even perform a trick or two along the way – along with a sense of comfort, confidence, and companionship.
Medical science shows that interaction with a therapy dog can reduce blood pressure; promote physical healing; reduce anxiety, fatigue and depression; and provide emotional support.
