On a visit to my London Hospital (UCLH) this week I met an amazing therapy dog called Nelson who spends his days at London hospitals making a real difference to patients.
There are a whole team of volunteer dogs who work at my hospital visiting young outpatients and those awaiting radiotherapy many of whom are rescue dogs from Battersea Dogs home.
Nelson was a beautiful dog with great karma accompanied by a really lovely owner kindly donating his time with his much loved pet helping brightening a day’s visit to the hospital.
Animals can really help with recovery and general wellbeing and can lower one’s blood pressure levels for certain. Cannot beat the unconditional love one can receive from a pet.
