Pet Therapy at Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital

It’s National Rehabilitation Week and what better way to take care of yourself than getting some extra help from a furry friend. Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital hosted a dog parade today in an effort to showcase the importance of pet therapy. The dogs lift the spirits of patients and take their minds off struggles. Patient, “I miss my sister’s dog so it brings me some happiness.” Matthew Martinez was in a car accident last week near Gallup and says he’ll be in the hospital for a while, but pet therapy should make the loneliness a little easier.
