Are pet owners healthier and happier? Maybe not

For many people, Fido and Fluffy are more than just pets, they’re true and equal members of the family. And it’s not hard to see why. Our pets greet us at the door after a long day of work, settle in our laps while we’re watching TV, or ‘sing’ along when we hum a tune. They provide companionship and even a sense of comfort. Yet according to new research there simply isn’t strong evidence for the general claim that living with a pet makes for a happier, healthier or longer life.
