The UK's Exploding Dartmoor Ponies Go On The Pill

Filed under: AnglophiliaScience!Horses

dartmoor-ponines-birth-control.jpg

The Dartmoor Pony is a wild horse that lives in south-western England and there's been a recent population explosion.

It is a semi-feral pony which means that they're basically wild horses but they have contact with humans and have learned to tolerate them whether it is occasional feeding, medical care or just crossed paths.

These ponies have been breeding like crazy recently with many of them ending up in sanctuaries or at the slaughterhouse.

So vets working with World Horse Welfare have partnered with the drug company Pfizer to bring contraceptive injections to the ponies.

How Pets Can Help Treat Your Depression!

Filed under: HealthDog

pets help treat depression

You know how after you have a long shiteous day, the only thing that can really get you to smile is your dog licking your face or wagging its tail?

Well, there's a scientific explanation for that!

According to veterinarians, researchers, and psychologists alike, pets are good for both people's mental and physical health, and improve not only mild to moderate depression in many, but sleep patterns and overall wellness!

According to psychologist Teri Wright:

"Pets just feel good to hold on to. They make you feel important, like you matter."

Meanwhile, psychologist Alan Entin pretty much sums it up with:

"Unconditional love. When you are feeling down and out, the puppy just starts licking you, being with you, saying with his eyes, 'You are the greatest.' When an animal is giving you that kind of attention, you can't help but respond by improving your mood and playing with it. For many people pets are the only relatives they have. It relieves their loneliness. People with animals tend to relate to them and they feel better. When people have a pet in the house, it forces them to take care of another life," Entin says. With the focus outward, he says, the pet owner may not dwell on their depressed mood as much."

Certainly makes enough sense to us!

It's hard to be bummed when they are ready to share with you all of that love and joy they have inside themselves!

We'd certainly pick that over a xanax chill pill! Ha!
