Seattle Hospital Uses 'Therapy Pups' for Healing

Ad Feedback

Dogs really are man's best friend. New research indicates they can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and even accelerate healing.

The Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, Wash., has developed a program known as Therapy Pups.

Dogs like Armani visit the surgery floors on a regular basis.

They're also outfitted with cameras. A custom made harness is wrapped around the dog's head.

The pup cams are getting thousands of views online and the pups themselves are a hit with the patients.

The hospital started therapy pups in 2008 and they plan to expand the program.
