Consequences of the Human Animal
Bond
  • Positive (for humans)
  • increased survival rates in cardiac patients
  • lowered blood pressure
  • socializing potentials for physically disabled

9
Positive Consequences (cont)
  • longer survival rates for elderly retirees
  • lowered rates of depression among elderly
    persons
  • fewer physical and psychological symptoms after
    bereavement
  • increases in self-esteem for children

Positive Consequences for Animals
  • Relationships form when different species of
    animals live in close association with each
    other
  • 1. mutualistic
  • 2. commensalism
  • 3. parasitism

11
  • Very little objective data available to
    describe our relationships with companion animals
    except that most are well cared for.

  • conspecifics
  • compete for resources such as food, territory,
    mates and social rank
  • destruction of personal property
  • physical injury
  • behavior problems

13
Negative Consequences for Humans (cont)
  • separation anxiety is very common -
    which is evidence an attachment exists.
  • damage to livestock and other animals

14
Negative Consequences for Animals
  • bond is not always enduring
  • behavioral problems
  • often contributed to by owner
  • aggression
  • separation anxiety
  • obesity

  • The companion animal can be the center of
    different concentrations of interest -
  • owner, owner's neighbor, the community, the
    industry and the animal itself. Each deserves
    respect and consideration for its interests.
