Pet Therapy: Therapy animal group now visits hospital patients and caregivers

Good News Notes:

“A smile can be the best medicine, and now, four-legged caregivers are providing just that at Covenant Health Plainview.

‘This has been so great for patients and even staff,’ said Med-Surg Registered Nurse Cindy Tye as she knelt down to pet a black lab named Troubles.

‘They give you such a great feeling inside.’

Troubles is a part of Pet Pals, the Furry Therapists group which recently partnered with the Plainview hospital to bring animal therapy to patients and staff who want it.”
